Made redundant or at risk of redundancy? Settlement Agreements
Many employers offer redundancy, severance or termination packages and ask you to sign a contract called a “settlement agreement”. They usually offer to pay your legal fees to take legal advice on the offer.
Our barristers are employment specialists who can:
- Speak to you by telephone or video conference such as Zoom
- Advise you on the terms of the settlement agreement
- Sign off on the agreement
- If your employer agrees to pay your legal fees, our barristers can do all this without charging you anything.
Contact us now if you have a settlement agreement that you need advice on.
Made Redundant? Do I have a claim?
Do you know that if you have been employed for 2 or more years, your employer has to follow a fair process before selecting you for redundancy? If they don’t do that, then the dismissal can be found to be unfair, and you can bring a claim in the Employment Tribunal for unfair dismissal.
Our barristers are employment law specialists who can:
- Speak to you by telephone or video conference such as Zoom.
- Advise you on the strengths of any unfair dismissal claim.
- Draft documents to file and progress a claim in the Employment Tribunal.
- Represent you at any hearings.
- Advise and represent you in any settlement discussions.
We have fixed fees for this type of work, with a modest fee to advise you in writing about the strengths of any claim.
Contact us now if you want to get advice about the strengths of any unfair dismissal claim.
Are there any time limits?
Time limits in the Employment Tribunal are very strict. Usually, you will have only 3 months from the date of dismissal to bring a claim. So, don’t delay, and submit your details to get legal advice as to your rights.
You might be entitled to furlough compensation in addition to any rights to claim unfair dismissal. For further details, click here.
What do I have to do?
Simply fill in your details in the form on this page. Once you have completed the form, your case will be logged on our portal. We will then consider your details and contact you to discuss your case, with no obligation or cost to you.
