Settlement agreements


The most common dismissal route

An employment contract can be terminated by mutual agreement, for example because of a reorganisation, in the event of a difference of opinion about the work or after long-term illness. Termination is then laid down in a settlement agreement or termination agreement.

The lawyers of Wessel Van der Lans Advocaten have extensive experience in drawing up and assessing settlement agreements. Not only are we familiar with all the rules, we also know the practice. We do not offer you a standard approach, but tailor-made solutions. In addition, our added value lies in the guidance during the entire process. We provide advice on the timing, strategy, conditions and severance pay. We can also negotiate on your behalf.

Common topics in a settlement agreement are the date of dismissal, a possible severance pay, the (notional) notice period, whether or not the employee has to continue working until the end of employment, settlement of bonuses, entitlements to share option schemes or deferred awards, returning or taking over property of the employer, enforcement of or exemption from non-competition and/or non-solicitation clauses, communication within or outside the company and confidentiality.
