Chambers, with its commitment to vigorously upholding employees’, workers’ and individuals’ rights, has a strong reputation for expertise in discrimination and discrimination law.
Members specialise in advising and representing employees, workers and individuals in all areas of discrimination and employment law, including:
- Discrimination across all of the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010;
- Equal pay;
- Flexible working;
- Maternity/paternity rights;
- Unfair/wrongful dismissal;
- Redundancy and restructuring;
- Transfer of undertakings (TUPE);
- Protective awards;
- Contractual disputes;
- Employee status;
- Health and safety/employers' liability; and
- Public law and human rights arguments arising from the full spectrum of employment and discrimination law.
The Team provides advisory and advocacy services in the Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal, County Court and the High Court, as well as representation at hearings before a wide range of professional regulatory bodies. Our experience includes litigation involving large corporations, local and central Government departments, as well as the armed forces.
Chambers receives discrimination and employment law instructions from law centres, Citizens Advice Bureaux, leading trade union employment solicitors and other leading discrimination law solicitors. In addition to dealing with single instructions, Chambers also has experience of working to specific service level requests. Underpinning our strong commitment to people’s rights, Members are willing to take on cases on a pro bono basis in appropriate circumstances.
