When an employer presents an employee with a settlement agreement there is a legal requirement for the agreement to be reviewed by a legal independent advisor on behalf of the employee.
Our clients approach us either upon being offered a settlement agreement or if they want to approach their employer to initiate settlement discussions.
We negotiate directly with the employer to try and achieve the best settlement for our client, explaining the implications if they choose to sign the agreement.
We can provide advice in a short time frame where needed and ensure key concerns are covered by the agreement. Whether this is to request that an agreed internal announcement is made on departure or to have an agreed form of reference; we help manage our client’s departure in the best way possible.
