In order for the settlement agreement to be legally binding on both parties, you must obtain independent legal advice on the contents. At Nelsons we will:

  • Ensure that you understand what you are signing;
  • Check that the document is appropriate in conjunction with your instructions; and
  • Where requested, work with you to secure the best possible outcome.

It is important that you understand the legal effects of the settlement agreement and the impact on your employment and finances, as once you have signed it you cannot change your mind.
