My Dh has been in his job for 15 years .Always commuted ,the next job is at least 3.5hour drive so not possible ,he does not want to lodge .Asked about redundancy and was told no ,however company are now prepared to discuss a settlement agreement .Anyone else had dealings with this type of thing .We have been told to get an employment solicitor to look over any proposal
Where they don't have legs reasoning to make you redundant so this is basically 'paying you off.'
You will have a 'protected' conversation where they will explain the terms and amount offered and then they will send you to a solicitor and cover your first appointment.
The solicitor will review the document and check everything is in order and they your DH understands. A reference is normally included in there that they will agree to give along with the ''announcement' email to let other colleagues know about your DH departing.
Just a quick update ,Settlement agreement signed at the solicitors today ,9 months salary ,plus we keep the car .Holiday pay etc and salary owed .He starts his new job middle of November .Thank you for all the info
Frenchlife please be careful who you say things to about your DHs SA. They very frequently contain a confidentiality clause in prohibiting any discussion. It could breach the terms of the SA talking about it with family and friends.
