If you are an employee, we help you understand the meaning and effect of the settlement agreement and its implications for your legal rights.
Your employer will almost always offer a contribution towards your legal costs for advice. In most cases, this contribution is enough to cover the cost of the work we do. This does not mean that we have any obligation to your employer. If we are instructed by you, we are your solicitor when giving advice, not your employer’s. It doesn’t matter who pays for the advice.
If you are not happy with the terms of the agreement, we can negotiate these for you. Your employer would not cover the cost of this work but, if successful, the improved terms are likely to cover the cost. Negotiation is charged at our hourly rate
