Leading London Employment Solicitors

During this unprecedented time that we are all facing with Coronavirus (COVID-19) Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors are working hard to provide our much needed legal services with as little disruption as possible.

We have prepared COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions for you

Settlement Agreement advice by telephone or video because of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our expert lawyers continue to provide advice and assistance to individuals with all types of settlement agreements from the relatively straightforward to the more complex.

Dealing with a settlement agreement can be stressful enough in normal circumstances and particularly more so in light of the current situation with Coronavirus. During this time we are more than happy to advise you on the terms of the agreement by telephone or video call whenever it suits you and to work with employers to overcome logistical challenges (signing agreements, returning company property etc.)

COVID-19 does not give employers free reign to ignore employment laws and protections and it remains our priority to help you find the best resolution and outcome with as little stress as possible.

We can give advice to:

  1. Explain what the agreement means in plain English
  2. Explore your rights and entitlements and your potential losses and compensation and help you assess whether you are getting a ‘good deal’.
  3. Explain what your options are and the pros and cons (financial, time, stress etc.)
  4. Achieve terms that you are happy with

We will continue to support you from the point that you first receive the agreement right through to its signature and execution. We will bring a clear-headed professionalism to take the emotion out of this current situation to successfully conclude the matter during this difficult time.
