“On returning from a 2 week holiday I was summoned to a meeting with the Head of HR and my immediate Manager. I was simply told that after discussion they unfortunately ‘Had to Let me go!’ I was then told that they had put together a “great settlement deal” and I could take the rest of the day off read through the document contact a Solicitor, sign the settlement and get on with life. This was a new experience to me and I found Keith Webster on line and contacted his office on returning home.
I received a prompt return call and that evening spoke to Keith Webster directly who informed me that he believed I had a very good case for Unfair Dismissal and his advice was not to accept. Within 48 hours my company was informed.
Within 30 days I had a substantially increased Settlement offer which on consultation I accepted. I was provided with detailed explanations of various options which allowed me to make the decision I did. This was an extremely stressful situation for me however the calm, professional approach gave me the assurance I was with the right company.

It is contract which ends the employment on legally binding terms agreed between the employer and the employee.
When an employment has come to an end, either because of redundancy or a disagreement, a settlement agreement is used to agree the terms under which the employee will leave their job.
It usually involves the employee receiving financial compensation in return for agreeing not to take the employer to court.
A settlement agreement is a new contract between you and your employer. It is an agreement that they will pay you an agreed sum of money and in return you agree not to take them to an Employment tribunal or any other Court.
It is important for both sides that you understand what you are signing and the legal implications of entering into the agreement.
