Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today.
Were you offered any support in your role when you raised concerns with management about the effect of the work on you and your team?
It is my opinion that the amount you are being offered is too low. It would take at least 6 months for the employer to effect a fair performance procedure which could result in dismissal and if there has been inadequate support then any subsequent dismissal may well be unfair in any event.
If you are being offered a settlement it will contain a legal advice clause. It is possibly worth taking the agreement and seeking the advice from the solicitor (at the employers expense) and trying to negotiate an increase sum of money.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
That says you have accepted the offer, is this the case?
Ok well if they pay you this without a settlement agreement then you have the right to still bring an unfair dismissal claim. It is likely that they will ask you to enter a settlement agreement to avoid this possibility. If you have not accepted the offer then you should reply to say that you did not accept you said you felt that you had not choice which is quite different. If litigation ensues then it will provide evidence of what was agreed.
I would suggest you say you are not happy with the amount on offer. You should ask for 6 months but be prepared to settle for 3.
All the best with it. Do not bow down on a months notice. It is really inadequate to compensate you in these circumstance. If they wont agree it may be worth seeing a solicitor and asking them to send your employer a letter to explain why you are entitled to more.
No problem, do come back to me in the future if you need to.
