Employment Costings

Employment law is carried out by our employment specialist, Carla Jones. Her hourly charging rate is £300.00 plus VAT.

There is a wide range of services that can be provided and therefore a wide range of costings

  • Settlement Agreements: These are perhaps the most common type of employment agreement where someone is being asked to leave their employment and to sign up to an agreement to receive compensation in return for not going to an employment tribunal. This usually involves a meeting with a client and a letter of advice, although sometimes it will also be necessary to engage in negotiations with the employer regarding the terms of the draft Settlement Agreement.
  • It is difficult to estimate with any accuracy the costings involved in employment matters, as costs will heavily depend on the complexity of the matter and the level of negotiation necessary. However:

(a)       general advice in connection with employment matters will be charged at the published hourly rate above and an estimate of time will be given prior to any work being undertaken.

(b)     Tribunal cases which actually go to tribunal are, in effect, Court applications and costs will depend on the complexity of your particular case.
