Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am happy to help you today. How long has she worked there for?
Do you know her exact start date? This is really important,
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a settlement agreement that she has been asked to sign? Has she done so yet?
Ok, the employer cannot lawfully dismiss for no reason and without following a fair procedure after a person has been employed for more than 2 years. Your daughter can therefore appeal against the dismissal and claim in the employment tribunal. Sometimes employers offer a 'Settlement Agreement' to terminate employment. This is an offer of a payment in return for the right to claim unfair dismissal. In order to be legally binding they must pay for a person to be advised by a solicitor before the document is signed.
I think that the offer of 3 months salary is potentially low. Compensation for unfair dismissal is normally based on economic loss subject to a duty to mitigate loss. In other words loss of earnings till she can get a job. Your daughter might have a better idea but I would suggest she asked for more money, maybe 6 months pay.
Hi she should definitely do that. The solicitor advising her on the agreement will also be able to help negotiate.
