Mr W had been employed as a senior financial controller for over a decade. His employers were looking to make redundancies due to the economic climate and down-turn in trade. As he was near retirement age, Mr W put himself forward for voluntary redundancy so that a younger man with a family could continue to work. With the help of our specialist Settlement Agreement solicitors, Mr W was able to secure a favourable settlement. He was paid an enhanced package of employment benefits and received a good reference in return for entering into a Settlement Agreement. His employers paid the legal costs.
