Grievances are concerns, problems, or complaints that an employee raises with their employer. There is no legally binding process that you or your employer must follow when raising or handling a grievance at work. However, there are some principles that should observed, starting with attempting to talk to your employer informally and then following the formal grievance policy if this fails. If your employer does not have a formal procedure, please call us to discuss the steps you should take.
A settlement agreement is a legally binding contract made between an employer and an employee. It is usually entered into at the termination of employment and sets out the full terms between the parties.
In its simplest form, a settlement agreement will provide for a severance payment by the employer in return for your agreement not to pursue any claims in a tribunal or court.
To be legally binding you will need to take independent legal advice on the document. We can review the document and sign it off for you.
Our specialist employment solicitors will advise you on the merits of your matter, if a settlement agreement is suitable and the amount of money you may receive at an Employment Tribunal, should it be advisable to seek a legal remedy.
