Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Hi there. What reason exactly has the employer given for presenting you with these options?
OK, thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not responded to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Thanks for your patience. If you do not agree with their final offer then you do not have to accept it and there is nothing that says you must get that in writing. Whatever you choose to accept will be documented formally in any settlement agreement but if you fail to agree an amicable resolution then you just continue rejecting it until they stop making more offers – nothing has to be done in writing.
In terms of what happens next then the ball is mainly in the employer’s court, unless you decide to resign and claim constructive dismissal. So if they decide to go down the performance management route and pursue it to its full completion, eventually you will be dismissed, in which case you will then have a potential unfair dismissal claim which you can take further. So it is a question of either resigning and claiming constructive dismissal or letting them dismiss and then claiming unfair dismissal.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
