Generous Redundancy Package Received Under a Settlement Agreement

Miss H’s employers were restructuring and requested that all the employees in Miss H’s department re-apply for their positions. Miss H was unsuccessful and suspected this to be due to the poor working relationship with her supervisor, especially as a Settlement Agreement had been offered to finalise the redundancy.

Miss H instructed Slee Blackwell’s Employment Team who advised that, as Miss H had no evidence to directly prove that her employment had been unfairly terminated and she had not worked for her employers for very long, it would be in her interests to proceed with the Settlement Agreement. As a result Miss H received a sum of compensation from her employers that was greater than her statutory redundancy entitlement.
