Legal advice for employees in Reading
DPH Legal regularly advises individuals on workplace disputes. We also offer support including representation for Claimants bringing Employment Tribunal proceedings as well as advice on settlement agreements.
We are conscious that legal costs can be prohibitive for employees who are involved in a dispute with their employer, the latter invariably having the deeper pockets. For this reason we will discuss pricing structures which suit individuals, including fixed fee arrangements for advice on tribunal claims.
We will also consider ‘no win no fee’ funding for claims. We regularly advise individuals including Executives on:-
- settlement agreements,
- Employment Tribunal claims,
- the validity of a redundancy process;
- Contracts of employment or director’s service agreements,
- flexible working applications,
- the enforceability of restrictive covenants,
- Advice on bonus schemes,
- commission structures or share options and the taxation of severance payments.
This is a non-exhaustive list.
Individuals are often offered settlement agreements by their employers. Alternatively it may be possible to negotiate the terms of an exit with your employer and this would typically be evidenced in the form of a settlement agreement. All of the lawyers at DPH Legal are practiced at negotiating favourable terms within settlement agreements for individuals looking to agree an exit from their employer.
