“The set’s members regularly appear in the Employment Tribunal, County and High Courts, and cover all types of employment law work.” Chambers UK, Employment (2014)
Members of the team have expertise in all areas of employment related law, and regularly appear in both the Employment Tribunal and the County and High Courts in relation to employment based disputes.
All types of work in employment law are covered, from basic unfair dismissal and contractual/wrongful dismissal claims through to more complex issues of discrimination, victimisation, whistle-blowing, working time, part-time worker pension schemes, and claims for stress-related illness.
Members undertake internal disciplinary inquiries and proceedings (for private companies, public bodies and individuals), disputes concerning directorial shareholdings, and restraint of trade litigation. They also advise on public law issues relating to the dismissal of officers of local authorities.
Five members of the team are panel counsel for the Equality and Human Rights Commission. As members of that panel, they provide advice and representation to the Commission to assist in the furtherance of its statutory remit to promote and monitor human rights and to protect, enforce and promote equality.
Members regularly act for both employees and employers, and Chambers has a broad client base which includes government departments and local authorities.
Our team regularly delivers lectures to solicitors and other professionals on recent developments in the law and practice. If you are interested in arranging a lecture then please contact our clerks.
