Settlement Agreements can be confusing for employees; however, at Lincs Law we do everything we can to ensure the process is as straightforward and clear as possible. Please read on for more information about Settlement Agreements and some wonderful Five Star Reviews which my clients have kindly shared.
What is a Settlement Agreement?
A Settlement Agreement is a specific type of legal contract between you and your employer.
A Settlement Agreement will (usually) do the following things:
- It will bring your employment to an end.
- It will set out certain financial and non-financial incentives you will receive from your employer upon your employment ending.
- It will confirm that once you have signed the Settlement Agreement you are prohibited from bring various employment law claims and actions against your Employer.
- It may set out further restrictions that your employer expects you to comply with once your employment had ended.
A Settlement Agreement can only be entered into on a voluntary basis by both parties. This means that you cannot be forced or made to sign a Settlement Agreement.
If you are offered a Settlement Agreement by your employer, you must take independent legal advice on the terms and effects of the Settlement Agreements.

I am always conscious of how stressful Settlement Agreement can be. I therefore always strive to make the process as simple and straightforward as I can for my clients. Below are some of the wonderful reviews I have recently received from my clients who I assisted with their Settlement Agreements.
“Jasmine listened very patiently, collating a great amount of information, calmly guiding me through my options, making it very clear to me that I was under no obligation and that I still had a choice. At every step keeping me informed and explaining everything. I am extremely impressed with Jasmine’s knowledge and ability to take over the discussions on my behalf. She was able to increase my settlement and provide an outcome I am happy with.”
“I haven’t used a solicitor before and thought this was a formality. I was surprised when talking to Jasmine how complicated it is and how much work Jasmine did for me. So thank you very much, you were clear, thorough and generally excellent!”
“Jasmine went through the agreement with me, checking the facts supplied and pointing out all relevant matters. I found her very easy to deal with, she inspired confidence in her work, and made it a painless process.”
