Employment Disputes

Settlement Agreements

A settlement agreement can be an amicable alternative to dismissal or redundancy. An employee agrees not to file a claim against the employer in a written agreement, usually in exchange for compensation. If you have been offered a settlement agreement, coming to see us will usually cost nothing, as your employer will usually pay your legal fees.

A Settlement Agreement is not always in an employee’s best interests. Sometimes a claim against the employer can be more valuable than the compensation offered. It is incredibly important to get advice from an expert solicitor who can advise on the value of any potential claim.

Scott Rowe has acted for employers and employees in drafting, negotiating, and advising on settlement agreements. If you have been offered a settlement agreement, or would like to offer one, please get in contact.

Disciplinary and grievance procedure

Disciplinary and grievance procedure is fraught with technicalities. A wrong move could potentially lead to a whole host of claims, such as constructive dismissal. It is a myth that the employer holds all the cards in disputes, so get in contact with us today to make sure your side is heard.

Unfair dismissal

Being dismissed can leave you feeling confused and vulnerable. There may have been discrimination involved, and it is important that everyone’s case is heard. Scott Rowe has successfully settled employees’ claims for unfair dismissal, and advises employers on avoiding claims before they arise.

If you have recently been dismissed, or wish to dismiss an employee, please get in contact.
