Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
How long has your husband worked for his employer? and what is your specific query in relation to this so that I can best advise?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, usually the same day. 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. I am pleased to be able to continue helping with your query now. There is nothing in law dealing with how much notice the employer has to give for a without prejudice meeting, it could be given on the spot if needed so he cannot challenge them legally over the notice he has received for it. At the same time, if he is not prepared to ready to attend, he can ask for a short delay, although it is up to the employer to decide whether to grant that.
He should also not feel under any pressure to accept anything at that meeting and t(e main purpose of it should be to discuss their proposal and be given the terms that would apply to it. He should then be allowed to take that away with him to consider it, before coming back with a decision. The time can then be used to go through the offer and wording in more detail and allow him to decide whether this is something which he is willing to accept, or even consider.
Also, remember that their first offer is unlikely to be their best, ***** ***** may be some further room for negotiation possibly.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You are most welcome. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to get back to me and I will be glad to help. All the best
