SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS: WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
First things first. We know that termination of employment can be stressful and urgent – so one of our settlement agreement solicitors will take your call straight away wherever possible or call you back on the same day. Or answer your email on the same day if you prefer. We do not believe in making you wait for an appointment when we can give you an immediate initial steer in the right direction. It’s all part of our aim of meeting your needs promptly.
Give us a call now if you’re convinced. Or read on for some more guidance.
The Covid-19 era makes this all the more important. Have you been chosen for post-furlough redundancy without good reason or proper process? Is there a disciplinary issue in the mix? Might the payment on offer look too low? Or is there a time critical reason to do the deal urgently? Whatever the case, our experience is just what you need.
How can we help you?
If you’re happy to strike the deal, we can guide you through the terms and effect without needless worry or delay. If you have concerns, or if we detect problems, we’ll make sure they are addressed.
What’s it all about?
Ensuring a clean break with your termination of employment. Your employer will be looking to ensure that you give up the right to make any claim to the employment tribunal after leaving.
What’s in it for me?
Usually, a severance payment with a good incentive to agree and sign up.
What do I need to watch out for?
Sometimes, very little – but our settlement agreement solicitors know there is always a risk of traps and loopholes, especially if there is a dispute in the background. “Gagging” clauses, restraint clauses, clawback provisions – we have seen them all, and if there is something unreasonable it what has been proposed to you, we will not let it slip by.
What will it cost me?
In most cases, nothing at all. The employer will be contributing to costs and this often covers everything. We will always look to negotiate for a higher contribution in complicated cases.
