Supposing a teacher was offered an settlement agreement by their school to terminate their employment. How does the teacher know the SA is fair? Would their union push to ensure they settled for a fair amount or do unions just want to get a quick settlement to get the case off their workload and also to avoid having the added work and cost of a tribunal? Could the teacher go to an employment solicitor for a second opinion or would this upset the union and cause them to drop the case? Advice / thoughts would be very welcome. Has anyone been in this position and what did you do? After being so badly treated by my head I want to make sure the settlement is fair. Thank you.
