Richmond, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 24 October 2012

Facing redundancy or dismissal is a difficult time. Not only is there is the job search, the review of the household finances and the emotional upheaval but also the legal issues that accompany redundancy or termination

Negotiating a good exit settlement can help soften the blow. The settlement will outline the terms of departure and how much money an employee will receive. Generally, it is reasonable for an employee to ask for a reference, key for finding new employment, particularly in today’s difficult job market.

However, before any settlement can be signed, employers will ask employees to sign a Compromise Agreement, where an employee gives up their rights in exchange for the settlement.

“For any Compromise Agreement to be legally binding, an employee must have received independent legal advice,” explains Richard Mullett of The Legal Partners. “The face to face consultation with an independent advisor, which is usually paid by the employer, is essential to ensure that the employee really understands the implications of their settlement terms. Your solicitor will sign a certificate confirming that you have received advice and this will form part of your settlement agreement.”
