Employment Law Settlement Agreements
We are very experienced in advising employees about employment law settlement agreements. We normally undertake a number of these every week. We take our role concerning these agreements seriously and provide comprehensive advice and support to our clients. The agreements which are produced by the employer are usually a very one-sided document, and we usually recommend for this to be amended to enable the document to be commercially acceptable to be signed by you. The employer normally offers a contribution towards costs as part of the agreement. The amount of such contribution is usually negotiable, and we use our best efforts to recover as many costs as possible from the employer.
The employer’s contribution will usually be sufficient if it is signed off without any amendments.
We will provide you with advice as to costs and your options at our initial meeting.
Our experienced employment team is made up of a senior partner of the firm, Lawrence Rodkin who has over 30 years legal experience and our consultant counsel, Kevin Harris who was called to the bar in 1999.
