Robert Holland, head of employment at Balfour+Manson, comments: “Due to the downturn in the oil and gas industry, many people are having to seek employment advice as a result of increased redundancies. We want to support these people by providing free legal advice to help them through a very difficult, and often confusing, process.

“Our team of experts will be on-hand to answer questions and provide relevant information about redundancy, in particular redundancy pay, settlement agreements, rules for employers, alternative work and time off to search for employment or training opportunities.”

“We are looking forward to supporting people affected by the downturn, and enabling them to better understand their legal rights.”
