What is a settlement agreement?

A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract with agreed-upon terms between a company and a party that wants to leave their role. They are useful where there is a dispute in the workplace, which could involve a disagreement over sick pay or holiday pay, as examples.

An employer or an employee can suggest the use of a settlement agreement. Settlement agreements must always be in writing. They typically include some form of agreement to pay a sum to the employee, as well as a reference from the employer regarding the employee. Generally, they provide for the employer to pay all the costs involved. 

By signing a settlement agreement, an employee is no longer able to make a claim via an employment tribunal for any of the types of claim that are listed in the agreement.
