Redundancy and Severance Agreements

by | Sep 22, 2020 | Legal News

Debenhams-DublinThe fall out from the health pandemic continues and unfortunately this in some industries has been more severe than others. In recent weeks we have received an increase in enquiries of clients seeking independent legal advice appointments for advices around Severance Agreements and Redundancy.

Essentially in these instances your Employer may offer to pay for you to attend with a solicitor for independent legal advice on the Severance Agreement. You may be obtaining a severance payment (also known as an ex gratia redundancy payment), but your Employer will want to know that in making this payment to you, you fully understand what you are committing to in executing the Severance Agreement. These Agreements can use significant amounts of legal language that we can translate for you into plain English so you understand exactly what are the ramifications of being made redundant and what your Employer wishes you to commit to when entering into the Severance Agreement.

We know that it can be a distressing time, even if a redundancy was ‘on the cards’, it can still come like a lightening rod out of the blue. Carmody Moran Solicitors based on Main Street in Blanchardstown Village, can help you navigate this transition and advise you on practical aspects of your redundancy, even if you are not challenging the end of the employment itself. Our solicitors offer common sense advise and we can conduct these appointments digitally via video consultation as well as in person.

Carmody Moran performed the conveyancing for my apartment purchase. My solicitor Caila Ryan was extremely diligent and professional. She did a great job guiding me through the process and offering advice. I really appreciated all of the documentation she provide me with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
