Being faced with the prospect of losing your job can be a distressing and daunting experience.
Many employers are now offering the option of a ‘settlement agreement’ as a way of terminating employment on mutually acceptable terms. If you are offered a settlement agreement by your employer, you should obtain independent legal advice so that you fully understand what you are agreeing to and the implications for signing the document. We can provide the necessary advice if you are presented with a settlement agreement by your employer.
Please make an appointment to come and see us. Your employer will usually pay for the advice.
