We used Samir at Manak Solicitors for an issue we had with a tenant. We found him to be very quick in responding to emails, which we find important. His knowledge of our problem was first class and he gave us great advise. We had a couple of zoom calls with him and he was friendly, patient and worked in a professional manner. We would highly recommend Samir at Manak Solicitors.

I recently instructed Samir at Manik Solicitors to deal with a rather worrying situation. From start to finish, he was nothing but professional, informative and precise. All of my worries were taken care of, and, over the Christmas period, whilst being out of the country! Complete peace of mind, reassurance and a great all round service provided. I cannot thank you enough! All the best!

Amazing Service from Samir Moftar and Manak Solicitors. My son recently received a fare evasion letter from our friendly local rail company. We were exceptionally concerned given that my son could receive a criminal record. We contacted Manak Solicitors who have excellent experience negotiating with the major rail companies. Samir Moftar quickly engaged on our behalf and resolved the issue within a week. We were amazed how quickly Samir was able to turn this around. We could not be happier with the service we received and will recommend Samir Moftah and Manak Solicitors to friends and family.

I contacted Samir @ Manak Solicitors with just under 2 weeks until my court date for fare evasion.. I saw his reviews online, they all spoke very highly of his expertise in this area. I had no idea the complexity of this but Samir took my case on board straight away and helped me to resolve a stressful situation within 1 week. Made the process very easy and straightforward, great service! Highly recommended!

The Manak Conveyancing team in Orpington were fantastic, a breath of fresh air, due to their proactive approach and always communicating either in person on the phone or by email- we always felt someone was there and available to help. We set them a challenge to exchange in a short period of time and they delivered as they said they would. I would certainly recommend them.

What is an employment settlement agreement?

An employment settlement agreement, also known as an employment settlement, employment separation agreement, or release of claims, is a legal document that outlines the terms and conditions under which an employer and an employee resolve disputes or issues related to the employment relationship. These agreements are typically used when an employee is leaving the company, either voluntarily or involuntarily, and they can cover various matters, including termination, severance pay, confidentiality, non-disparagement, and the release of legal claims.

Key components of an employment settlement agreement often include:

  1. Pay: The agreement may specify the amount and timing of any financial compensation provided to the departing employee as part of the separation.
  2. Release of claims: Employees are typically required to release the employer from any potential legal claims they may have related to their employment or termination. This can include claims of discrimination, wrongful termination, or other workplace-related disputes.
  3. Confidentiality: Many employment settlement agreements include clauses that require the departing employee to keep the terms and details of the agreement confidential.
  4. Non-disparagement: A non-disparagement clause prevents the employee from making negative or disparaging statements about the employer or its employees.
  5. Non-compete and non-solicitation: Some agreements may contain restrictions on the employee's ability to work for a competing company or solicit the employer's clients or employees.
  6. Return of company property: The agreement might outline the process for returning company-owned equipment, documents, or other assets.
  7. References and recommendations: Some agreements may include provisions related to how the employer will respond to reference requests or provide recommendations for the departing employee.
  8. Resignation: If the separation is a result of voluntary resignation, the agreement may contain a formal resignation statement.
  9. Governing law: The agreement may specify the jurisdiction and laws that govern the agreement.

Employment settlement agreements are often used to provide a clean and mutually agreed-upon resolution to employment-related disputes. They can be beneficial to both employers and employees as they offer clarity and the opportunity to avoid costly and time-consuming litigation. However, it's crucial for both parties to seek legal counsel and fully understand the terms and consequences of the agreement before signing it, as it typically involves giving up certain legal rights in exchange for the terms of the agreement. Additionally, there are legal requirements and considerations, depending on the jurisdiction, that can affect the enforceability of such agreements.

At Manak Solicitors, we will understand the nature of separation and try to reach an agreement which is beneficial for the employee ensuring the maximum yield.
