Experienced in representing employees and business in employment matters

We will guide you in the best way to approach problems such as workplace disciplinary, harassment and discrimination. Our settlement agreement solicitors Manchester are familiar with the hardships that workers face at the time when they have to raise a formal grievance or defend disciplinary action.

We are ready to provide services to those employees who have been offered a settlement agreement, or who want to take their case to an Employment Tribunal. We will assist in the proceedings and will provide legal representation where it required, in these cases.

How we can help.

Often we see clients who are currently off work with work-related stress due to these circumstances. They can be due to a new manager or being put under a performance review/capability procedure, or they can be as a result of disciplinary.

Jacobs Legal will then advise you what those potential claims might be worth in an Employment Tribunal and then together we can decide whether you should sign the Settlement Agreement or not. We are often instructed to negotiate the Settlement Agreement by seeking additional compensation or making changes to the wording of the agreement.

The benefits of signing
an agreement

  • Settlement Agreements offer a clean break
  • They are a quick and relatively simple way to get a pay off when leaving a business
  • They can avoid the need for disciplinary / capability / performance review procedures which can be stressful and worrying.
  • They give certainty when an Employment Tribunal gives you none
  • A tribunal only awards you compensation, it cannot reverse the decision; a settlement agreement is a clean slate.
  • You can often get a reference from your employer
Cost implications?

Nothing, because your employer usually contributes to legal costs and your costs with us are usually no more than that figure. It’s usual for the contribution to be at least £350.00 plus VAT but don’t worry if it’s not, we can still assist.

For more complex matters or higher value settlements, the fee can be £450.00 – £600.00 plus VAT.

We only work on the basis of fixed fees – so the fee will be agreed with you before you ask us to work on your behalf.

First Step – Submit your settlement agreement to us

Please send us a copy of your settlement agreement, employment contract, and any other relevant documents.

Second Step – Consultation and Approval of Settlement Agreement

We will schedule a consultation for you with one of our expert solicitors for a settlement agreement to discuss your settlement agreement. This conversation typically lasts 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how complex your settlement agreement is.

Your lawyer will talk to you about the terms of your settlement agreement. They will also give you expert legal advice on what the conditions and implications are. If your lawyer identifies any terms that are unjust or unreasonable, we will request your employer to modify them.

Step three – endorsement and invoicing

After receiving the final draft of your settlement agreement, we will move forward to the signing process. We will send the approved agreement to your employer for their signature, along with a bill for your legal fees.

Once your employer has also signed, your settlement agreement will be fully operational and legally enforceable. Although our participation typically ends here, should you encounter any problems with the payments owed to you under the settlement agreement, you can reach out to us for additional help at no extra charge. Although rare, we will support you until the funds are in your bank account.
