In today’s economic climate, redundancy, dismissal and resignation are on everyone’s radar. They raise complex legal issues, often dealt with through a specific type of contract — a settlement agreement. At Van Eaton Solicitors in London, we have particular expertise in advising employers and employees on this type of agreement.
We have worked in the private sector. We understand the workplace — not just the law.
What Is A Settlement Agreement?
These contracts bring a term of employment to an end and set out the rights and duties of both sides. Settlement agreements are appealing because they benefit employers and employees. But they should not be entered into lightly.
Working with specialist employment lawyer James Carmody, Van Eaton Solicitors combines a considerable understanding and application of employment law with firsthand experience of the workplace. We use this knowledge to provide practical employment law solutions for our clients. In drafting an agreement, we will address the following issues:
- The calculation of bonuses
- Consideration of notice pay
- Ensuring noncompete clauses are reasonable and enforceable
- The impact new employment will have on the agreement
- The protection of pension contributions
Ensuring Your Agreement Is Watertight
Settlement agreements provide a win-win solution for you and your employer. At a time of uncertainty, we will negotiate a comprehensive agreement so that you avoid the costs and financial risks associated with an Industrial Tribunal hearing. We are committed to:
- Being transparent on costs
- Ensuring the terms of the agreement are fair
- Negotiating terms that are final
- Explaining the Industrial Tribunal process
If you wish to discuss some other aspect of employment law such as unfair dismissal or redundancy, we will immediately connect you with one of our closely scrutinized and trusted associated London employment law solicitors.
If you are facing redundancy, have been dismissed, or are considering resignation, contact us online or by phone on 0808 1415700. We offer a free consultation by phone or at our Streatham Hill offices.
