If your employer terminates your contract and offers you further financial compensation or another incentive, usually beyond your contractual entitlement, then they should provide you with a written Settlement Agreement.


If negotiated properly, a Settlement Agreement can be a very effective way to ensure that you are adequately compensated for the termination of your employment without the need to bring a formal claim against your employer. 


Claims against your employer can involve expensive employment lawyers and are usually time-consuming, energy-draining and may attract potentially damaging publicity.
