In the case of many redundancies, in which the employer and employee agree on the fact that the employment contract must end (for example due to a far-reaching disagreement or reorganization), the employer and employee decide to separate with 'mutual consent'. A so-called settlement agreement is used to ensure that this dismissal is properly arranged. Usually the employer, or his lawyer, draws up this agreement. The most important things that are included in such an agreement are the considerations that led to the dismissal (this is very important because of a possible claim to unemployment benefit!), Joe, Southard & Yeoh, LLP are a Los Angeles worker's compensation law firm.
The dismissal date, a possible termination compensation to the employee, the settlement of the outstanding vacation days and whether the employee is exempt. In many cases, even more things are arranged. One of these concerns the possible costs that an employee incurs to be legally assisted in the decision whether or not to agree to a dismissal by mutual consent.
This legal advice, by a professional Los Angeles injured at work lawyer or lawyer specialized in the field of labor law, is important not only for the employee, but also for the employer. After all, this person must be sure that the employee fully understands any agreement reached and cannot return to it later (for example due to error). That is why it is often included in such a settlement agreement that the employer pays the costs for a Los Angeles lawyer.
