Settlement Agreement after Flexible Working Request Refused

02 December 2016

Client Situation

Ms A contacted our Employment Solicitors after having been approached by her employer with a Settlement Agreement. Ms A had made a request for flexible working which was refused by her employer. It was agreed that the best outcome for both parties was to agree her termination of employment under a Settlement Agreement.

Ms A was happy to accept the financial settlement being offered but wanted to ensure the terms in the Settlement Agreement were fair.

How We Helped

Our Employment Solicitors reviewed the proposed Settlement Agreement along with the Ms A’s contract of employment. We advised Ms A in detail about the wording of the proposed Settlement Agreement and its effect and noted some amendments were required.

From our review of the proposed Settlement Agreement amendments were identified as being required to the body of the proposed Settlement Agreement and to ensure the best protection of the client under the terms of the Agreement.

We corresponded with the employer seeking to have the necessary amendments made.

The Outcome

The employer agreed all the amendments to the Settlement Agreement and over the next few days the Agreement was signed by both parties.

Ms A was pleased matters had been resolved so quickly and as amicably as possible.
