Sometimes a relationship between an employer and an employee breaks down irretrievably. This means it is time for the employee to leave. If you need to dismiss an employee we always recommend that you telephone us beforehand so we can ensure that you are acting on the right grounds and following the correct procedures.

We can protect you against costly mistakes and ensure that you do not pay anymore than you have to !

Settlement Agreements

We are experts in drafting and negotiating settlement agreements.  These can be a vital tool to protect your business and allow you to achieve a clean break with a departing employee.

Dismissing Senior Executives

Parting company with directors or other senior employees is sometimes necessary, but it can be sensitive and requires careful handling. We have advised organisations of all sizes on how best to manage the departure of senior executives, including issues such as:

  • Advising on potential liabilities
  • Preparing Settlement Agreements
  • Arrangements regarding announcements and references
  • Restrictive covenants
