Settlement Agreement Advice in Reading
If you’re in a dispute with your employer or are going through a redundancy process you may be offered a settlement agreement. Can you be sure the agreement is fair? Have you been offered sufficient compensation for the loss of your job?
Specialist employment solicitors at DPH Legal are experts at providing advice on settlement agreements. We are based in Reading with further offices in High Wycombe, Oxford and Swindon and have advised individuals throughout the country on hundreds of settlement agreements.
What is a Settlement Agreement?
A settlement agreement is a legally binding agreement following the termination of your employment. It usually provides for a severance payment by your employer, in return for which you warrant not to pursue any claim you may have to an Employment Tribunal. In order for the settlement agreement to be binding you will need to take advice from a qualified employment lawyer.
What does it cost?
In the vast majority of cases the contribution offered by your employer towards your legal costs will cover our charges for advising on the settlement agreement in full. This means you pay us nothing. No extra costs are incurred without your prior approval.
How quickly can we deal with it?
A qualified employment lawyer will provide advice on your settlement agreement on the same day we receive the agreement. This advice can be over the telephone, or in a ‘face to face’ meeting at our offices, or at a location in or around Reading, whichever is most convenient to you.
