Our costs or a contribution towards our costs are usually paid by the Employer under the terms of the Agreement.
The amount of such contribution is negotiable.
Please let us know if you do not want to pay any more than the Employers contribution. In such a case, we can limit our work to ensure that the contribution is complied with.
Clients however usually like us to carry out a full service concerning such agreements and in particular to amend the agreement so that it is commercially acceptable for them to sign.
There are some common amendments which we usually make to the Agreements.
An example of this is to provide that any pre-agreed reference cannot be amended by the Employer, and for the terminal payment not to be reduced to zero following any breach of the agreement by the Employee.
We are particularly experienced in acting for clients where the settlement agreement is signed within a background of redundancy, threats of performance management or disciplinary action, or where there is long term sickness absence.
We are a very approachable law firm.
Please telephone us to discuss your case without charge initially.
For settlement agreements, please send to us a draft of the proposed agreement, a copy of your current contract of employment, and a recent pay slip.
