August 2022 – Northampton – doubled termination payment

The client instructed Sarah after being presented with a settlement agreement already at work. The offer was low at around £5,000 plus notice pay. As a result of advice Sarah was able to negotiate this payment up to £12,750 instead as well as agreeing a number of amendments to the actual agreement as this was a poorly drafted agreement from the employer full of errors. The legal fee contribution was initially also very low at £350 plus VAT but we were able to increase this as part of the amendments to £500 plus VAT meaning the client had no contribution to pay himself as all of the amendments and counter offer were swiftly accepted.
