Termination and settlement agreements
If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to make redundancies and you feel a Settlement Agreement would best protect your position then we would be happy to provide you with a tailored agreement to suit your needs.
We can advise you on all aspects of ending an employee’s employment, whether it is as a result of gross misconduct or redundancy.
Terminating an employee’s contract of employment is never easy and requires careful handling and planning in order to ensure a fair consultation process is followed to minimise any potential unfair dismissal claim.
If you feel you have a need to terminate an employee’s contract of employment you should consult a solicitor in order to ensure you follow the correct procedure, failure to do so may result in the employee bringing a claim.
We can provide you with advice throughout the process and can also provide you with template letters setting out the specific requirements in order to ensure the correct procedure is followed and the employee is advised of their rights, such as their right to be accompanied to all consultation meetings and appeal any disciplinary decision.
