Draft a Settlement Agreement

If you are drafting a settlement agreement, it is essential to be aware of the claims that can (and cannot) be settled via such an agreement; and of the essential requirements for a valid settlement agreement. You will need to make a number of decisions, including how much money to offer an employee; what tax is due on the settlement sums; whether to provide an agreed reference; and how to manage confidentiality and post-termination restrictive covenants. We provide detailed advice on all of these issues, together with an example settlement agreement and extensive drafting notes.
