Negotiating settlement agreements

We are experts at negotiating with employers to get employees a fair settlement agreement deal. We start by taking detailed instructions from you, then calling and/or writing to HR on a ‘without prejudice’ (meaning ‘off-the-record’) basis. Sometimes we would recommend sending an open letter or grievance too.

If your employer will not settle amicably, then we can help you to issue a tribunal claim with minimum fuss. But before it gets to that stage, most cases settle out of court, especially if expectations are realistic. Learn more about how to negotiate your settlement agreement in our free negotiation articles here.

Signing settlement agreements

If you have a settlement agreement document that you are happy with, then you can have it reviewed and countersigned by us to make it legally binding. By custom and practice, the invoice from us is paid directly by your employer, so we will never charge you for this service. Because we are employment law specialists, we can provide the advice over the telephone and by email and within 24 hours.

Conducting employment tribunals

If you have to fight a claim because your employer won’t agree a settlement agreement, then it is important to get the tribunal claim form right, as this is the key document setting out your case. We can take care of everything for you, including the advocacy at the tribunal hearings, or we can help you to save on fees and just assist you with the important paperwork – as you wish. Also remember the very strict 3 month time limits for most claims. Read some of our articles on tribunals here.

We took the government to court to fight its new discriminatory employment law

Helping disabled, pregnant and elderly employees to get better rights in the workplace and fighting the unfair dismissal compensation cap

As featured in The Lawyer and the Law Society Gazette, we issued judicial review proceedings against the government’s cap on unfair dismissal compensation, reduced from £74,200 to one year’s salary.

The cap disproportionately affects elderly, disabled and pregnant employees on lower incomes. Now if you’re dismissed whilst pregnant for example, you will only be able to claim a maximum of one year’s salary, even if you’re out of work for over a year (which you probably will be). So you will have to claim benefits, and the taxpayer will pick up the bill.

There are no austerity savings for Britain here, and the only ones to win from this law are unscrupulous companies who have been proved to have unfairly dismissed an employee. That’s why we decided to fight the government in court in order to overturn this law. Read the full story here.
