Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Please can you explain the situation in some more detail? Why have you been offered a settlement agreement and how long have you worked for your employer?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. You certainly won’t have to accept any settlement offered and the final choice is still yours to make. You can instruct your lawyer on what you want or do not want to accept and they must follow your instructions. So you can for example set a minimum amount that you want to accept and the lawyer will not accept anything lower than that. You are the client after all, you are the one making the final decisions and you can decide what to accept. All the lawyer can do is advise you and then follow your instructions.
