Settlement Agreements for businesses

Settlement Agreements for businesses

Your business needs the right employees for now and the future.  There are times when you will need to consider bringing the working relationship with an employee to an end.  There may be performance or health issues.  It could be a case of misconduct or simply that you have lost confidence in them.  You know that employment law protects employees from being unfairly dismissed. We appreciate that most employers don’t want to get bogged down in legalities and technicalities.  You want to get the right commercial result for your business, as fairly and as quickly as possible. We deliver that for you.

One way of achieving this is to negotiate a severance package and to have your employee sign a settlement, agreement.  This is your insurance policy to make sure that no claims can be made against you in the future.

How can we help?

We will help you with your negotiation strategy.  The more senior the employee, the more important this becomes. Our team of specialist employment solicitors can tell you:

  • How to best approach the initial discussion and to outline what the basis of your concerns are
  • How you can minimise the financial exposure to your business, whilst maximising the chances of your offer being accepted
  • How to ensure a quick, clean exit that will not destabilise your business.

Our settlement agreements are tailored to your needs and to the situation in hand.  They are watertight, so you have the comfort of knowing that you are fully protected.

Our charges

As with everything we do, our charges are very reasonable and tailored to the work that you would like us to do.  In the vast majority of cases, we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you can safely budget, with no fear of receiving an unexpected bill from us. We also offer a Fixed Price HR Retainer.  This allows you real time expert employment advice from our team, all year round, at a price you can afford.
