Welcome to Aeon Solicitors’ dedicated website for settlement agreements (previously called compromise agreements) and redundancy services.
We would be delighted to assist you, whether you are an employee facing redundancy or needing advice from settlement agreement solicitors, or you are a business owner needing to make staff redundant or dismiss an employee for some other reason.
If you have been given a settlement agreement then our legal fees will not exceed the amount your employer will pay for your advice - that means we will not bill you for settlement agreement advice. You are welcome to contact us now for a Free Chat on 020 3440 5605
You may need advice from redundancy solicitors to clarify whether your employer is offering you a fair redundancy package. We can explain the redundancy process and clarify whether your employer has dealt with you fairly.
In some situations, employees can initiate a conversation in confidence with their employer about the possibility of exiting on agreed terms. However, the employer may not agree to an exit arrangement if it sees no benefit.
As lawyers who specialise in employment law, Aeon Solicitors will offer you comprehensive advice about your legal position and promote a negotiation with your employer. If you have been presented with tight deadlines we can respond swiftly.
If your business is going through a transformation and you require legal advice to assist with a downsizing operation we can guide you through every step of the process.
Sometimes it will be expedient to terminate an employment contract with an employee on agreed terms and we can advise you about the appropriate severance package and exit arrangements. We draft bespoke settlement agreements for a fixed fee.
Redundancy law is well defined and employers should follow a fair redundancy process including identifying and warning staff at an early stage and consulting about suitable alternative work. If the process results in termination then a statutory redundancy payment will be due (according to length of service and age).
Settlement agreements may be offered by an employer that seeks to settle an employee’s legal claims. They are contracts about which the employee will require independent advice from settlement agreement solicitors or other qualified legal advisors.
This website contains further information about all aspects of the law on redundancy and settlement agreements. Our main website provides information on other aspects of employment law.
We are conveniently based in the centre of London and are happy to welcome our clients to our Fetter Lane, EC4 office for advice from a specialist settlement agreement solicitor. If London is not convenient for you, then we will assist by telephone.
