April 22 – Hertfordshire – mental health issues

The client came to see Sarah with a settlement agreement which was not particularly generous given the
client had suffered from mental health issues during the pandemic, was in a senior role and had not been sufficiently supported. Sarah assisted the client with negotiating the settlement sums on offer by over 100% by relying on the failure to make reasonable adjustments and the client’s disability under the Equality Act 2010. The client not only secured her notice pay as a lump sum, she was able to remain in employment for an additional month, but also received a discretionary bonus and the settlement sum ex gratia almost doubled. The client was pleased that Sarah was able to secure the results she did in negotiations with the Company’s lawyers.
