Free compromise agreement helpline

We offer a free compromise agreement helpline to employees

If you have been offered, or think you are about to be offered, an employment compromise agreement then our expert lawyers are here to help.

We operate nationally and our free compromise agreement helpline can be contacted by either phone on freephone 0808 139 1589 or by email.

We have a team of qualified solicitors who are experienced in advising employees on the terms of employment settlement agreements, and they are always happy to answer any preliminary queries that you may have.

If you wish to appoint us to act on your behalf in dealing with your settlement agreement then in most cases you will not need to pay for our advisory service. This is because it is conventional for employers to make a contribution to the employee’s legal costs and where that is the case then it is our policy to limit our charges to the amount offered. This means that in the overwhelming majority of cases our service is effectively free to employees.

When you are offered a settlement agreement your employer will normally confirm that they will pay for you to seek independent legal advice, and will confirm how much they are willing to contribute. However, where this point is not addressed then our lawyers will be happy to contact the employer to obtain clarification.

When you decide to appoint us to deal with your compromise agreement the process is very simple. All you need to do is to send us the settlement agreement itself, along with any recent correspondence with your employer. We will then arrange a convenient time to discuss the matter with you, either on the telephone, or by video link if you prefer.

Once the terms of the agreement have been explained and you are happy with the agreement, then the legal formalities can be finalised. If you need time to go back to your employer to renegotiate any aspect of the agreement such as the level of compensation or the wording of your reference then that will be fine. If you would like us to undertake negotiations on your behalf then we would be happy to do so, but that might incur a fee, so that is something we would discuss with you at the time.

You can call our free compromise agreement helpline on freephone 0808 139 1589. Alternatively you can email your query to us at [email protected] and a member of our team will get back to you straight away.
