Termination of employment

Helping you deal with all aspects of ending contracts

Support to handle dismissals

If you’re considering a dismissal, we can help you determine whether it’s needed.

We risk-assess the likely consequences if you go ahead with it, and the impact on your organisation if you don’t. We can also help you work within the disciplinary procedure framework. With any situation, we’re here to make sure you have the correct tools required.

Help with settlement agreements

When a settlement agreement becomes necessary, we can advise you on the tactical and commercial considerations. We can lead negotiations on your behalf, and advise on the terms of the settlement agreement. We do this both for businesses and for individuals, particularly senior executives.

Advice on redundancies

Before a restructure or redundancies taking place in your organisation, we can advise on the related strategic considerations and help inform your decisions.

Then we can guide you through the redundancy process, including collective consultation and TUPE obligations. We can also advise on structuring redundancy payments.

All Legal Services are provided by Price Bailey Legal Services LLP. For information about our regulatory status see www.pricebailey.co.uk/legal.

Post Termination Restrictions

Whether you’re an employer or employee our vast knowledge and experience covers both areas of restrictive covenants.

For employers, we can:

  • draft specific post termination restrictions to protect business interests
  • advise on the enforceability of existing restrictions
  • assist on enforcing your covenants
  • assist in defending injunctions proceedings.

For employees, we can:

  • advise on the restrictions and the impact they have on future employment
  • assist in defending injunctions proceedings by previous employers.

Guidance through employment tribunals

We can help you with any element of a tribunal claim, and work with you during the ACAS early conciliation process.

We prepare claims or responses to claims, when you need them, and support you throughout the whole employment tribunal claim process. We can also help you reach settlements based on commercial, strategic and tactical factors.

These fees relate to claims made against employers. We will advise and assist with claims made by an employee, and broadly speaking fees will follow this guide. However, in the event, we act for an employee in their Employment Tribunal claim we would provide specific detailed fees estimates for the work required.
