If you have been offered a settlement agreement by your employer, Andrew Macmillan and the aiMac-hr team are on hand to provide you with all the expert advice you need and on a rapid “same day appointment” basis.
It is normal practice for employers to pay your legal costs for obtaining the necessary independent legal advice on any settlement agreement from us and so there should be nothing for you to pay at all.
Andrew Macmillan is a fully qualified lawyer who has been providing reliable advice to clients on settlement agreements for over 25 years. He is a recognised legal expert in this specific area and will properly consider all your legal options before recommending or advising you to sign any proposed settlement agreement. If necessary, he can also attempt to renegotiate the terms of a settlement agreement directly with your employer.
It is vitally important that you get the right advice because a settlement agreement is a legally binding document containing many things which can potentially affect your future. For example, provisions concerning a reference, confidentiality, warranties and post-termination restrictions must all be considered carefully.
You can read one of our earlier blogs for additional information about how long you have to accept the terms of a settlement agreement. You need to make sure you act quickly and we can always help you get the right advice, and at short notice too.
We regularly advise employees all over the UK on their settlement agreements and you can either contact us on 07921 938675 or use the contact form on our website if that is easier for you.
You will always be in “safe hands“ with aiMac-hr because we realise just how stressful a time it can be when you are parting company with your employer and we will take you through the process in a calm and reassuring way.
We look forward to hearing from you!
