Rollits LLP is an established law firm with offices in Hull and York. Rollits has a team of experienced specialist employment solicitors who provide employment law advice on all aspects of Settlement Agreements (previously known as Compromise Agreements).

A Settlement Agreement is an agreement which deals with the mutual termination of employment between an employer and employee on agreed terms. When the Agreement is signed by both parties, the Employee is prevented from bringing claims against the former Employer.

We regularly assist employers in drafting Settlement Agreements to be offered to employees with a view to a mutual termination of employment including advising on the process for employers to follow in offering a Settlement Agreement to protect against potential claims which is known as a protected conversation.

We also assist employees by providing the independent legal advice required on the terms of a Settlement Agreement.
