Employment Law Solicitors London

 

Employment and Compromise Agreement
Arona St James Solicitors have specialists who can assist you with your employment issues in a confidential and sensitive manner. Some law firms act only for corporate employers, the experience of others lies almost entirely in acting for individual employees. We have a greater understanding of employment issues because we act for both employers and employees. Looking for expert employment law solicitors London? We see both sides of an issue and are in a better position to offer practical solutions. We specialise in the following areas:

Settlement Agreement
We have years of experience in advising clients on settlement agreements, which are statutory agreements involving an offer from employer to employee to agree to mutually terminate the employment relationship. An employer will usually pay your salary to a certain date, part or all of the contractual notice period, and often an ex gratia payment (which can be tax free up to a maximum of £30,000.00).To be legally binding, the employee must have received independent legal advice, this is generally paid for by the employer. Please supply us with a copy of your agreement and we will be happy to advise you on the offer being made. Please do not feel costs are a reason not to consult a solicitor as your employer should pay for your legal advisors reasonable costs. We can act promptly and achieve a clean break swiftly. Contact us during this difficult time, and we hope you will find a friendly service with a robust approach against the other side.

Discrimination
We both bring and defend claims of discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, age and disability.

Litigation

Our practical experience and negotiating skills often help clients avoid litigation in the first place. We are happy to advise on settlement agreements and implications of settling a case.
