We have created a settlement agreement calculator that will tell you how much you can expect to be owed if your employer decides to terminate your contract. We offer same-day, remote and in-person services, at no cost to you.
Has your employer discussed ending your employment through redundancy or with a settlement agreement or compromise agreement?
Poole Alcock has expert employment solicitors who can help you with your settlement agreement. Our Employment solicitors specialise in reviewing, preparing and advising on settlement agreements. With a wealth of expertise in dealing with settlement agreements, they can provide you with quality, easy to understand advice. We will advise you on your settlement/compromise agreements, ensuring you understand your rights. We will also negotiate with your employer if we think you are entitled to more. From beginning to end, your compromise agreement will be dealt with by a knowledgeable and supportive solicitor. We appreciate the importance of getting your compromise agreement right. Our solicitors understand the complexities of dealing with compromise or settlement agreements and will provide you with fair advice. Your redundancy agreement will be considered thoroughly. The advice our solicitors will provide you will be reasoned and sensitive to your needs.
The general position for payments provided for under the remit of the Settlement Agreement is as follows:
It is important that the payments arising under the Settlement Agreement are taxed and subject to NIC appropriately. Whilst it is the primary responsibility of the Employer to ensure this, it is common for the Settlement Agreement to provide for a specific tax indemnity to re-allocate this risk to the Employee.
Poole Alcock Solicitors have an expert settlement agreement team that will advise you on:
The content of your settlement agreement, making sure you understand the terms and are aware of your rights.
Whether or not they are offering you enough money, and if not then we will negotiate this with your employer.
If you are being treated fairly.
