Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Please can you provide some more information?
OK thank you for your response. Leave it with me for now and I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you as soon as I can. Please do not respond 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. Having looked around, there is actually no specific rate for such fees and it will vary greatly based on the industry, the role, the level, the pay, the volume of business you do with them, etc. There are many, many variables that would come into it. So it would be impossible to say an amount of £X is reasonable, whereas an amount of £Y is not. So not sure exactly how to give you an answer because there is nothing in law I can refer to in order to tell you ‘this is what you can charge’…
Do you know what the norm in the industry is? Have you perhaps had a level of commission with previous clients or have you spoken to other companies in a similar position to see what commission they may charge?
ok that will make it all difficult in all honesty - as mentioned there are really no formulas one can refer to and it will depend on what is usual practice in these circumstances, what the industry usually does and so on. In the end if this goes to court it will just have to arrive at a calculaiton it believes it is fair. As you can imagine that can vary based on who hears the case. So it will be best to continue negotiating with the other side and try to come to a mutually acceptable figure, otherwise you have to chance it in court, without any guarantee that you will get a better outcome. Does this clarify a bit more?
you are welcome and all the best
