When faced with a settlement agreement from your employer you will need to seek independent legal advice from an independent legal adviser.


The good news is that your employer is likely to cover the costs if your case is straightforward and you enter into the agreement. However, even with your legal bills being covered, you still want to ensure that you receive the best possible advice during what can be a stressful and sometimes life-changing moment.
