Are you thinking about signing a settlement agreement? Do you live in Wiltshire? If so, then the team of settlement agreement solicitors here at Bonallack & Bishop can help you.
Since the end of July 2013, compromise Agreements were renamed Settlement Agreements.
Why is getting independent legal advice so important?
It is very important to look for independent legal advice before you sign a settlement agreement.
If you contact our team of experienced settlement agreement solicitors at our office in Salisbury, we’ll make sure that the outcome of your settlement agreement is reasonable, fair, and protects your financial interests.
The language involved in settlement agreements is often complicated and technical. Our specialist team of employment solicitors can clarify everything for you, and can look out for your best interests throughout the process.
Why appoint us for your settlement agreement?
At Bonallack & Bishop we have given independent advice on hundreds of settlement agreements over the years. Call us today on (01722) 422300.
To reach a positive outcome from a settlement agreement you should work with solicitors who regularly take on this sort of work. That’s what we do, so why not join the list of the hundreds of clients who we’ve helped through the settlement agreement process.
We can help with many different aspects of the settlement agreement such as:
· Giving the right legal advice to ensure that any settlement agreement is fully legally binding.
· Advice about what you should do if you think your settlement agreement is unreasonable, including guiding and supporting you through the employment tribunal process if applicable in your case.
· Explaining the implications of the terms of the agreement as it refers to your circumstances
· We can attempt to get a better deal with your employer if you are not happy with the settlement offered.
· We can advise on specialist settlement agreements such as the Mutually Agreed Resignation Scheme (MARS) or the Voluntary Early Release scheme (VER) offered by the NHS.
· We can offer advice by phone or email as this is often much quicker and more simple. We are still happy to meet with you face to face if you prefer.
Who can give you independent legal advice on your settlement agreement?
According to the Employment Rights (Dispute Resolution) Act 1998, to make sure that your settlement agreement is binding, that independent legal advice can only be given by a qualified lawyer, a qualified trade union official, or a qualified advice centre worker – all of whom must be covered by an appropriate certificate of indemnity insurance.
Check with whoever is providing you with the appropriate legal advice that they have the appropriate professional indemnity insurance and that this person is identified in the agreement with their name and signature
How much is this going to cost?
With most settlement agreements, the employee’s legal fees are paid by the employer.
Do I have to attend meetings with my solicitor?
Although you need advice from an experienced and knowledgeable solicitor, you don’t have to necessarily meet your solicitor in person unless you want to.
Our employment law team is experienced in taking instructions over the phone or by email. We negotiate settlement agreements on a regular basis for clients all over Wiltshire, so wherever you live, we are happy to help.
