Nov 2021 – Northampton – redundancy package

Sarah was asked to advise on a settlement agreement given to the client with a package to exit on a site closure. There was not much that could be done with the offer as it was already enhanced but the agreement required about 17 amendments including securing an enhanced reference for the client rather than a factual reference and agreeing that he could not use his holiday before the termination date and be paid for any days accrued but untaken. The costs of the settlement agreement were borne by the employer solely with no contribution required from the client.
