MK, Northamptonshire

On returning from a 2 week holiday I was summoned to a meeting with the Head of HR and my immediate Manager. I was simply told that after discussion they unfortunately ‘Had to Let me go!’ I was then told that they had put together a great Settlement deal and I could take the rest of the day off read through the document contact a Solicitor, sign the settlement and get on with life. This was a new experience to me and I found Keith Webster on line and contacted the company on returning home. I received a prompt return call and that evening spoke to Keith Webster directly who informed me that he believed I had a very good case for Unfair Dismissal and his advice was not to accept. Within 48 hours my company was informed. Within 30 days I had a revised Settlement which on consultation I accepted. I was provided with detailed explanations of various options which allowed me to make the decision I did. This was an extremely stressful situation for me however the calm professional approach gave me the assurance I was with the right company. I have no hesitation in recommending Keith Webster and his entire team to anyone who is unfortunate to find themselves in the same situation.
