Reply Link Anonymous 10 February 2009 at 17:02 Payoff packages Nabarro is giving 3 months’ notice plus one month’s salary. However long you’ve been there. And please note: the statutory redundancy is not one week’s salary for every year you have worked for the employer. It is about £300 (maximum) for every year you have worked for the employer.

Linklaters payoffs at 3 weeks per year worked is indeed generous, but not when they cap it to a maximum of your annual salary. If you are a long server (ie 20 years plus) this calculation looks good until you realise it is actually capped to your annual salary. Long time servants stand to lose big time! Come on Linklaters…give us a little more respect…it’s kind of hard to find a job at our age when you’ve committed so much of your life to one company!

Everyone is too scared to say anything in case they are singled out for the chop – divide and conquer.To any students thinking of applying for a training contract with links a word of warning – if you sup with the devil you will eventually pay the price.

Reply Link Anonymous 13 February 2009 at 10:04 Consultation is required in London under UK employment laws. The firm applies the process as required for each jurisdiction. Japan, for example, is an entirely different system. And I’m not sure if one can say the process is vicious – from what my Links friends in Asia tell me, the HK package is more abrupt but more generous in cash terms than the UK one; and in Japan, given the process is supposed to be “voluntary”, the base package is 6 months salary for fee earners, and 1 year base for secretaries, in each case with a month salary payout per year of service.
