Settlement agreements for employers
As an employer you may be forced to consider the possibility of redundancies either to reduce costs or to achieve an organisational structure that meets your business needs.
A failure to follow the correct process can result in an expensive unfair dismissal claim. Our specialist employment lawyers, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, will work with you to devise a strategy and support you in implementing it.
Our employment lawyers can provide you with a clear, step by step process to follow as well as providing you with all necessary documentation tailored to your organisation's needs including announcements, letters and selection criteria. Alternatively, if you prefer, we can sense check all or part of the process you are planning.
Benefits we bring
We will help you achieve your desired structure and minimise the risk of an Employment Tribunal claim. We are always mindful of the impact that redundancies can have on your organisation and its employees and our advice takes account of this to minimise the impact on your business.
The lawyers in our employment law team regularly advise employers on redundancies and we have advised on a diverse range of scenarios over the years. All of the partners in the team are accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as specialists in employment law and the team is rated by both Chambers and Legal 500 as one of the best in Scotland.
We can provide employment protection and tribunal awards insurance cover.
Our approach to fees
We offer fixed fee packages for advising on redundancies. If it is not possible to provide a fixed fee then we will provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
