Sex or Age Discrimination
A settlement agreement is a document used to record the terms upon which employees leave their employment or to settle employment disputes that have arisen.
We can either act as an independent adviser to the employee or draft settlement agreements for the employer.
Settlement agreements provide that the employer contributes to the employee’s fees for obtaining independent advice from an employment solicitor. Our fees are usually met by the employer so often there is no cost to the employee.
Other matters to consider on settlement agreements include tax-free payments, pay in lieu of accrued but untaken holiday pay, bonuses, restrictive covenants, confidentiality clauses and “garden leave”.

“Kidd Rapinet’s employment solicitors helped me with a really awful age discrimination situation at work. I’m now working for another company but their support has made me far more confident about my rights should anything like this ever happen again.”
