St John’s Chambers’ employment practice covers a wide range of employment matters, including unfair dismissal, discrimination and victimisation matters, to name a few.”

Legal 500 2017, Employment

St John’s Chambers’ employment law barristers have a wealth of experience advising businesses from large corporations, private companies and SME’s to the insurance and construction and engineering sectors.

We advise on all aspects of non contentious work, including:

  • Recruitment policies
  • Fair and unfair dismissal
  • All forms of discrimination on the grounds of disability, race, sex, age, sexual orientation and religion
  • Discrimination, including bullying and harassment claims
  • TUPE
  • Tax and pension schemes
  • Redundancy
  • Injunctive relief
  • Whistle blowing

We undertake and advise on internal disciplinary inquiries and proceedings and also appear in UK Employment Tribunals, the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the County and High Courts if necessary.

Five members of the team are panel counsel for the Equality and Human Rights Commission.


Barristers also act as mediators in employment law disputes and have the skills to find a suitable solution for both parties in an acrimonious matter wherever possible. Read more.
