Dismissals and settlement agreements

There is little to deter a disgruntled employee from bringing a claim on termination and employers remain particularly exposed during such a period.,

We regularly advise clients on how to terminate employment relationships fairly for reasons such as misconduct, redundancy and capability.

We give a comprehensive risk assessment and clear view of where you stand legally and robust direction on implementing an appropriate process

Strained employment relationships

We will work with you to limit your exposure on terminating employment relationships.

Where the employment relationship is particularly strained or a claim already envisaged, we can advise on:

  • the merits of a settlement agreement,
  • drafting the agreement where necessary,
  • dealing with any subsequent negotiations and
  • seeking whatever advantages (eg tax efficiencies) and protection (eg confidentiality, restraints) are appropriate.
