C Compromise Agreements
With Compromise Agreements, your employer normally agrees to reimburse you with some or all of your legal costs for these but usually only if the agreement is completed - consultations can last for 90 minutes to two hours. If for any reason your employer fails to pay ( it can happen!) then you would have to pay the full cost but that would be rare. The hourly rate is £135 per hour plus vat. There is no free 15 to 20 minutes for work in connection with a compromise agreement.
- Upon economic grounds, we cannot offer legal aid for employment advice.
