Legal expenses insurance
We can act for you under a legal expenses insurance policy, which usually cover employment disputes. This sort of policy is often included with, or attached to, household insurance policies.
A settlement agreement is a contract between an individual and their employer by which the individual contracts out of some or all of their legal rights.
Settlement agreements are often used by employers when they terminate an employee’s employment. They will usually involve the employer paying a compensation payment to the employee in exchange for the employer getting the peace of mind from knowing that the employee is giving up their right to make a claim against them.
For a settlement agreement to be binding you must take legal advice on the terms and effect of it. Once a settlement agreement has been signed it is almost impossible to unravel it, even if it turns out to be a bad deal. So, it is essential that you take the very best advice, which is where we can help. We have advised on hundreds of settlement agreements, from the simplest of agreements to the most complex arrangements at director level.
We will assess your potential claims against your employer and advise you on whether you are getting what you deserve.
Your employer will often not give you their best offer first time and any offer you are presented with will often not be set in stone. We can help you renegotiate the terms to make sure that you are properly compensated and that your interests are well protected.
Our charges are very reasonable and we can tailor them to your needs and to the work that you would like us to do. In most cases we will agree a fixed fee for your work, so that you have the comfort of knowing in advance what our fee will be. And, in the vast majority of cases your employer will pay most or all of your legal fees for taking advice on your settlement agreement.
