Subject to the employer`s legal contribution and agreed contractual terms. If you advise us to negotiate on your behalf, additional fees will be due. This is generally part of the commercial terms of the agreement. As a general rule, the employer pays the consulting costs on the terms and effects of the agreement. If you ask us to negotiate one of the terms of the trade policy of the agreement, the employer can lobby for the time it has taken for that part of the negotiation and that they may be required to contribute to the costs. The billing protocol presented must also show that it is only if substantial negotiations on amounts and/or conditions are necessary that the worker will eventually be required to contribute to his legal fees, but we will always first seek to increase the employer`s contribution to a worker`s legal fees if necessary. If it is not possible to obtain such an increase, we offer you a reasonable fixed fee for such work, given your personal circumstances. The transaction contract is a legal contract between you and your employer – you both have to comply. Your employer may want you to have the confidentiality of the agreement. An employer regularly contributes to an employee`s legal fees for advice on a transaction or compromise contract, so we are able to offer a completely free service to most customers with our fixed prices starting at $250, plus VAT.
Your employer will discuss with you what should be in the agreement, either face to face or in writing. You will contact us and we accept the first instructions regarding the terms and conditions of the contract (e.g.B. Date of termination, compensation package, completion period, employer contribution to your legal fees, etc.) and the circumstances that lead your employer to offer you the agreement. Once you have registered your comparison, it is quick and easy to submit it to the signature by a mediator via our online application system (external link). You must have your transaction or compromise agreement signed by a lawyer in order for it to be legally binding. However, the service we offer has many potential benefits for employees who enter into transaction agreements, including the guarantee that you will get a good deal, about claims you have or might have against your employer (for example. B dismissal or unjustified discrimination) and compensation, which you would likely get if you claimed to fully inform yourself of the potential impact of the terms of the contract beyond their “face value” to ensure that you are fully aware of what you are committed to by being informed of all “hidden traps” or restrictions after the termination of the agreement, to ensure that you are aware of the potential tax impact of reaching the agreement and, if necessary, negotiate with our lawyers an increase in the compensation offered by making it convenient, experienced and experienced trading to give you the best offer. Most of the time, it will be by a qualified lawyer, but it could also be a union representative or an adviser with the authority to advise on transaction agreements. After receiving the signed contracts, we complete the advice certificate and send the two contracts with our invoice to your employer/former employer, who then resigns us to a copy of the fully executed contract and returns them to us.
Upon receipt, we will take a copy and send you the original for preservation. Transaction agreements (formerly known as compromise agreements) are legally binding agreements that set out the full terms of an agreement between the employer and the worker, with a worker pledging to sign his right to sue his employer for a cash sum.
