Redundancies & settlement agreements
Redundancy and reorganisation situations can be difficult for all those involved. Our employment solicitors offer clear and timely tailor-made advice to guide you through the process and have extensive experience advising employers on dealing with:
- Whether there is a redundancy situation
- Effective strategies for making redundancies
- Formulating selection matrixes
- Collective consultation
- Electing employee representatives
- When to notify the Secretary of State
- Redundancy payments and bonuses
- Settlement agreements
For corporate clients we can advise on and provide template Settlement Agreements and co-ordinate the process. Of large scale exits for start to finish. If you are about to embark on a large scale restructure, we can help take some of the pain away by helping you to find a panel of advisors, with whom we will work to create a template agreement and then provide you with an automated process that logs and tracks every settlement agreement to the final electronically signed document.
Alternatively, if you are making large scale redundancies and want to ensure your employees get sound and independent advice, we would be happy to join your panel, using the automated process to manage large numbers of agreements, whilst giving your employees the one to one solicitor advice and care they need.
