This video focuses on the use of Settlement Agreements to facilitate employee exits. When the employment relationship is not working, following a lengthy process can waste management time and prevent the business from moving forward. Here we explain how you can use a Settlement Agreement to part ways with an employee and waive any legal claims arising out of their employment and its termination. We specifically look at: how to reach a deal; ‘without prejudice’ and ‘pre-termination negotiations’; optimising tax efficiency; and the extra considerations when settling with Directors and shareholders.
