Mr M increasingly found it difficult to perform his role given the lack of support from directors in the company. After some time he was signed off by his GP with work related stress, leading to his resignation. His employers subsequently offered him a Settlement Agreement to protect their interests.
An employment law solicitor from Slee Blackwell Solicitors negotiated on Mr M’s behalf to ensure that the Settlement Agreement contained clauses protecting Mr M’s right to bring a claim to enforce the Settlement Agreement if necessary and to prevent the company making derogatory comments about him. All in all Mr M received about £20,000 from his employers.
