Employment/Settlement agreements advice in Barnsley

If you are an employee, at some stage in your career you may find yourself having to deal with unsettling and upsetting employment problems, where specialist help is essential.

Employment Law is both complex and constantly changing and it is vital that you involve a team of experts, who have a comprehensive working knowledge on current legislation.

Our specialists can advise you on all matters from issues with contracts of employment terms to severance and redundancy issues.

The most common area where we provide assistance and legal advice are Settlement Agreements (sometimes known as Compromise Agreements) dealing with the end of your employment with an employer.

Many contracts of employment (particularly for senior or key personnel) contain restraint or restrictive covenants intended to prevent a departing employee from being involved in a competing business for a period of months or years following termination of employment. This is a complex area of law. We are able to advise upon the proper interpretation of such provisions which (if enforceable) may restrict an employees choice of new employment.
