According to the news, ASDA are looking to make over 3000 people redundant.
Locally, in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, we understand that around 500 are going to be made redundant.
We have recently been instructed by many employees of ASDA and particularly at George in Lutterworth, to advise on the Settlement Agreement Letter that was handed to them when they were told they were going to be made redundant.
ASDA Stores do provide a list of solicitors, but none are solicitors in Leicester and none have local offices. Josiah Hincks have offices in Blaby, Market Harborough, Coalville, Leicester and Syston and we are happy to see you in every office. ASDA will pay your legal costs for taking advice.
The Settlement Agreement letter is an important document and by law needs to be signed off by an independent solicitor. We can provide advice on the termination of your employment, discuss the way in which the redundancy process happened, advise you on any claims you may have against ASDA, and advise you on any package offered by the company as part of the settlement. We can advise you on the structure of the agreement and how it is intended to work.
For advice and a meeting, call Steven Mather on 01858 462 462.
