3. Dallas McMillan –  Employment & Settlement Agreement Lawyers Scotland


“If your relationship with your employer is irretrievably broken down, or if you and your employer wish to bring your employment contract to an amicable end, your employer may offer a settlement agreement. Often, these are accompanied by payments of compensation.

These agreements are required to be tailored to your precise situation. Employers cannot use the same agreement for more than one employee. As such, it’s vitally important you take legal advice before signing.

We can advise both employers and employees on the fairness of a proposed agreement, advise on what is an appropriate level of compensation and offer advice on other matters arising.”
