Devon company resolves employee dispute with Settlement Agreement.

After experiencing difficulties with an employee, the employer consulted Slee Blackwell Solicitors about terminating her employment. The conduct of both parties could have drawn criticism from an Employment Tribunal and the employee had a potential claim for Constructive Dismissal. Slee Blackwell Solicitors drew up a Settlement Agreement providing for a mutual termination of the employee’s contract on the basis that a factual reference was to be provided to the employee together with a sum of compensation.
