A client was having difficulty with their employer. The client came to John Fowlers Solicitors, recommended by a friend who ran a local business who put them in touch with us as we had advised the business.
The employer wrongly accused the employee of wrongdoing. The employee, already unwell had their illness considerably worsened due to the unreasonable actions of the employer.
How we helped
Karen Morovic, John Fowlers Employment Law specialist, advised the client on how to handle the employer and proactively sought a settlement agreement on the client’s behalf. This resulted in a successful and speedy resolution that was able to benefit all parties involved, most of all the client.
We offer a free half hour consultation to all new clients so that if it is clear that we are not going to be able to assist them, because for example they do not have a claim, they don’t incur any charges.
In this particular matter, because the employer was keen to get the matter resolved, the case concluded in about 3 weeks with a settlement agreement being entered into.
The biggest challenge is always knowing when is the best time to settle. Emotions often run high in employment disputes and a clear, calm, head on the part of the solicitor to help guide the client is always key.
The client valued most that the solicitor spent a considerable amount of time working on their case but did not charge high legal fees. The quality of service and value for money stood out.
What the client said
“I just wanted to e-mail you to say thank you to both yourself and to Sarah for all your help and support with my recent Compromise Agreement. I am pleased to say that I have received all the payments due to me in full”
