Former KWM staff offered financial settlement over handling of redundancies
Administrators put forward settlement proposal for ex-KWM staff laid off after European collapse capped at nearly £4k per person

The group, which brought the employment tribunal claim in February, has received a settlement proposal of eight weeks’ pay for each claimant, after administrators Quantuma admitted a ”technical breach” in the required duration of a redundancy consultation when it was carried out by KWM.
