You may have good reasons for wanting to dismiss an employee; they are not performing, there is a misconduct issue, a potentially disruptive redundancy situation, or the working relationship has simply broken down.
Even a fair and carefully arranged termination process can take many different paths and many weeks to complete. Settlement agreements provide an alternative way to resolve disputes saving time, costs and offer peace of mind.
Our employment law specialists can help you negotiate this particularly tricky area and protect your business by drafting a watertight agreement to give a clean break on the best terms possible for your business - even if there doesn’t appear to be grounds to fairly dismiss the employee.
Protecting your business can be challenging. We recognise there is often a need to act quickly and commercially. There may be a risk that your employee contacts your clients or leaks confidential information. We can draft agreements and all correspondence at very short notice.
There are a number of cost options available including traditional hourly rates, a guaranteed fixed fee or they can be incorporated into our outsourced HR retainer package. To discuss your options including a fixed fee and retainer service, call today on 08000930094 or fill out our online enquiry form.
If you are not a client of Spencers Solicitors, we do offer a service to your employees, advising them on the terms of their settlement agreements, which in turn benefits you. Meetings can take place at your workplace to advise and complete the agreements in a timely fashion, convenient to your business.
Dependent on the number of settlement agreements you are offering your employees, we may be able to substantially reduce your legal costs.
