We have represented employees and workers at all levels, from regulatory proceedings through to the Employment Tribunal, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
Our cases have helped to change the law in relation to indirect discrimination, the rights of agency workers, the relationship between freedom of expression and unfair dismissal, and the access of service personnel to the employment courts.
Members of our team benefit from being part of a multi-disciplinary set and have close working relationships with our immigration team, which we have drawn on in high-profile employee status and trafficking claims.
The members of the team are drawn from diverse backgrounds, and are able to provide advice with empathy. We provide a high quality, effective and approachable service. We are proud of our commitment to workers’ rights, and are well aware of the difficulties faced by individuals who seek redress in a jurisdiction that does not provide public funding for claims. A number of our members take employment cases under public access.
