Redundancy & settlement agreements
Finding yourself at risk of redundancy or transferred to another employer as part of an outsourcing exercise can be a very stressful time. We can help alleviate some of that stress by providing you with clear, practical advice on the consultation process, explaining whether you have any potential claims or assisting with negotiating severance terms.
If you are about to be made redundant or your employment terminated and have been given a settlement agreement on which you have been told to take independent legal advice, we can help you. You can book an appointment with one of our employment solicitors, without leaving the comfort of your own home. Our legally qualified advisors will take you through your agreement in a face-to-face meeting online or by telephone, whichever is easiest for you.
We have expertise in both public and private sectors, covering airports, IT, retail and services, motor, healthcare, pharma, finance and education to name just a few sectors.
We understand that a termination/redundancy process can be a stressful time and we aim to make the process as easy and jargon-free as possible. We will advise you on the contribution towards legal costs your employer is making for you to obtain the advice and will only incur additional costs with your agreement.
“An exceptional balance of expertise and personality.”
