Our EMPLOYMENT team seeks to anticipate potential issues and offers creative, timely and practical solutions to modern workplace issues
Dismissals and Settlement Agreements
We recognise that the termination of employment is never easy.
We work with employers to manage and negotiate exits quickly and sensitively, pre-empting any potential pitfalls, minimising disruption to the business and, wherever possible, allowing the individuals concerned to exit gracefully.
A badly managed exit may have negative implications, for both employers and employees. We help our clients minimise the risks by carefully guiding them through the dismissal process.
In many cases, settlement agreements are a cheaper and more attractive solution to a long and protracted litigious dispute. We advise employers on the terms and effect of settlement agreements. However, it is important that these documents are drafted carefully to ensure they provide full protection. Because of this, we work closely with clients to ensure the agreements are tailored to meet their needs and best interests.
