If you have been offered a settlement agreement by your employer, it is important you have an independent and experienced lawyer consider whether the agreement is in your best interests. JFH Law’s specialist employment lawyers have been drafting and negotiating on settlement agreements for many years. We provide clear explanations and impartial advice as to the best way to proceed.
There is no obligation upon you to accept the terms of the agreement. If you choose not to, you are free to make a claim to the employment tribunal (usually within 3 months of the date of termination).
The good news is that your employer will usually contribute towards the cost of you seeking independent legal advice. At JFH Law, we are committed to keeping the costs within the maximum paid by your employer wherever possible, and if there are likely to be additional costs we will discuss these with you before carrying out any work.
