Writing a settlement agreement

Part ways with your employee on good terms

Home » Writing a settlement agreement


Do you want to end the employment of an employee, without intervention of courts but in mutual agreement? Then a settlement agreement provides a good solution. In a settlement agreement parties agree to when, how and on which terms an employment with your employee is terminated

 Important subjects for closing a settlement agreement

  • A correct stating to ensure the employee still has a right to receive benefits
  • Mutually agreeing to a final discharge
  • Arrangements regarding post-agreement commitments, such as a non-competition clause and confidentiality.

Does it take longer than expected?

You won't pay and we will continue until the agreement has been completed and signed
