Our client, a senior sales executive of a multi-national hi-tech corporation, was terminated after 9 years’ employment, due to the company’s decision to restructure its sales force. On our advice, our client rejected the company’s offer to pay his salary for only four more months. As a result of our intervention, the company provided a favourable letter of reference and outplacement counselling. After a lawsuit was commenced for wrongful dismissal, we initiated mediation which produced a settlement. As a result, our client recovered as much as he had earned in his last 18 months of employment and the company also paid the mediation cost and most of his legal fees.
