With employment law ever changing and increasingly complex, failure to obtain the correct legal advice can result in serious consequences. At Andrew Kingston & Co. we offer an employment law service, to both businesses and individuals, in respect of Settlement Agreements.
A Settlement Agreement is entered into when an employer and employee have agreed terms to bring the employment to an end. It is only legally binding if the employee has received advice on the meaning and effect of the Agreement, before signing it, from a solicitor who is independent of the employer. Provided that the Agreement is signed and comes into effect, it is therefore standard practice for the employer to pay the employee’s legal fees.
We do not provide representation in Employment Tribunal cases.
