Settlement Agreements

A settlement agreement is a contract made between an employer and an employee. It allows the employee to give up their right to claim against their employer, usually in exchange for compensation. Settlement agreements are often used when an employee leaves their job but can also be used when they stay with the company.

Employers use settlement agreements for several reasons. They can help avoid formal disciplinary or redundancy procedures, saving time and money. They can also help to protect the employer from claims of unfair dismissal.

To be valid, a settlement agreement must meet specific requirements. It must be in writing, and the employee must get independent legal advice on the agreement’s meaning.

I asked to review my financial settlement. Within a matter of a short time, I got an appointment. My solicitor, was very professional and kind. She even offered me the chance to have a video conference if I was unable to go to the office. I felt comfortable and I was treated with respect. I felt confident in her capabilities. She was warm and put me at ease. The process was made very easy for me. Osbourne Pinner family law team was on top of my brief to them. Should I need a solicitor in the future, I will be very happy to go back. Thanks

Very Professional and responsive I instructed Osbourne Pinner Solicitors for my UK Start Up visa. I was so pleased with the whole immigration team. Solicitor Ravi and Ardra dealt with my UK Start Up process. I was so pleased with the way they dealt with the whole process. Everything was so smooth. Both of them were so responsive throughout the whole process. Ms. Ardra updated me all the time. My Endorsement decision came in less than 3 weeks. Their in house business strategist was very supportive and helpful too. The way they provided me support during all the workshops with the business strategist and then preparing me for the endorsement body, it was like a hand holding thing for me. I am so grateful for all their support. It has been fortunate for me to find Osbourne Pinner. Thank you for all your support and help throughout the tricky process. I am so pleased to receive my successful start up visa endorsement with Osbourne Pinner. I can not wait to see the whole team after my visit to the UK with my family. I will highly recommend your services to Osbourne Pinner.

I have found in my dealings with them that they go the extra ‘proverbial mile’ in trying to help. This is not something I have experienced before with any other of the big family law firms. I am very happy with the service and will now recommend to my family, friends and colleagues.
