Our employment practice group provides commercial and sensitive advice representing employers and employees in both the public and private sector. Members have a breadth of experience from unfair dismissal claims and redundancy to substantial whistle-blowing claims, TUPE, and cases involving statutory employment rights such as equal pay, maternity rights and working time disputes.

We have a strong reputation in the field of equality and discrimination with members of Chambers having appeared in a number of seminal cases in the past few years, including Ladele v Islingdon LBC [2009] EWCA Civ 1357, Eweida v United Kingdom (2013) 57 EHRR 8, and Bull v Hall [2013] UKSC 73.

Our expertise in other practice areas means that we are uniquely placed to advise in cross over cases, for example:

  • Commercial employment disputes, including claims involving breach of fiduciary duties and post-termination restrictive covenants.
  • Cases where there is cross over between employment and personal injury law, including disability discrimination, ill health dismissals and workplace stress claims.
  • Employment issues involving immigration law.

Chambers publishes a monthly email newsletter, the Employment Law Update. If you wish to be added to the mailing list for the update, please contact the Clerks, or select here to view previous editions.
