Settlement Agreements are one of the most common tools used by employers to deal with employee departures. They are used in all manner of circumstances, such as where the employer is paying an enhanced redundancy payment, or where the employer simply wants to get rid of someone without the need to follow a formal process. But how do you get to the point of reaching agreement, and how do you have those difficult “protected conversations”?
Join us at our breakfast workshop on 24 November where we will deal with these issues, and also consider other situations when it might be appropriate to use a Settlement Agreement.
We will cover:
– What is a Settlement Agreement and when might it be used?
– How do you go about having a “protected conversation”?
– How do you assess the right amount to offer?
– The ACAS Code of Practice
– What should you cover in the Settlement Agreement?
Our workshops are run in a round table format to give plenty of opportunity for discussion as well as asking questions of our friendly, knowledgeable team.
