What happens if I have already left my job or have started a new job?
If you’ve already left your job then that doesn’t rule you out from being able to negotiate a settlement agreement: your employer may be disposed to offer you a settlement agreement or, alternatively, you could have good legal grounds to push for a settlement agreement.
If you’ve already left your job then sometimes your previous employer will get in touch to offer you a settlement agreement – normally settlement agreements are offered (and completed) before you leave your job but we certainly have seen cases where a former employer has come forward to offer a settlement agreement after an employee has left their job. If this happens then you can get advice on the terms of the settlement agreement and, if you’re happy with it, look to sign it – one of our employment solicitors can help you with your agreement.
In most circumstances, however, if you’ve already left your job without being offered a settlement agreement then it is probably unlikely that your previous employer is going to offer you a settlement agreement without a push from you (or a solicitor) to do so. If you think that you have been treated unfairly in your previous job, whether during your employment or at the termination of your employment, then you may have good legal grounds for a claim against your previous employer – you can use this to leverage a settlement once you have left. If you’re unhappy with how you’ve been treated by your former employer then contact us to speak to one of our employment solicitors for a no-obligation chat about your case and your options.
