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’ approachable and experienced employment law barristers offer advice and representation on a broad range of employment and discrimination law.

We understand that bringing a claim in an employment tribunal can be a stressful and uncertain time for an individual and our friendly and professional barristers work with you to explain the whole tribunal or court process, help you understand the relevant law and prepare all the relevant documentation for your claim.

We can advise you on a range of legal issues including:

  • Redundancy
  • Maternity and paternity leave
  • All forms of discrimination and victimisation including bullying and harassment
  • Holiday pay
  • Equal pay and bonuses
  • Termination of employment
  • Whistleblowing

We 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.
