What can I do to help?
An effective settlement agreement will ensure that your employer offers you financial compensation, or an alternative benefit, usually beyond your entitlement, as an incentive to accept the agreement on the termination of your employment. Often an agreement can be agreed upon in a civilised negotiation with the employer to provide a satisfactory result for the employee.
However, in some cases, the initial offer of a settlement agreement which an employer offers to an employee might be inadequate or might not include what you believe is owed to you. In this case, things can be a bit more complicated.
This is where I can help you negotiate.
Getting expert legal advice is essential to ensure your settlement agreement, whether it is offered in a redundancy situation or as a result of a dispute, achieves the results you deserve. If you need to negotiate the amount or terms of a settlement, it is advisable to instruct a solicitor with extensive experience and success in the field. They will work to advise you on your individual circumstances and provide a service to suit your needs.
Settlement agreements are drafted to comply with complex legislation. A proper understanding of this is vital to ensure that the settlement agreement, which will usually mark the termination of your employment, is entered into with the benefit of expert advice and awards you sufficient financial compensation. As a specialist, experienced employment solicitor, I have the necessary expertise to assist my clients, making the process as simple and stress-free for them as possible whilst achieving a successful result.
An alternative to entering into a settlement agreement is to bring a claim before the employment tribunal. If you are not satisfied with the settlement offered, and if your employer is not prepared to negotiate suitable terms, you have the option of taking your case to the employment tribunal to contest it. I have an excellent track record of negotiating improved settlement deals for my clients.
What’s the process?
As soon as you contact me, I will work with you to understand the full circumstances surrounding the termination of your employment, to make sure we achieve the best possible settlement agreement payment. I am an independent solicitor, which means that I handle all of my clients’ matters personally, rather than passing them on to a team member.
