Governance Spotlight Special
Governance Spotlight Special - Driving forward equality, diversity and inclusion
I am an employment solicitor who predominantly specialises in representing clients within the NHS and various police forces.
I advise on a broad range of contentious and non-contentious issues, in particular supporting clients with the defence of employment tribunal claims. I have experience in successfully defending claims of wrongful and unfair dismissal, disability and race discrimination, breach of contract, and alleged detriment as a result of whistleblowing. I have also been instructed by clients to undertake investigations into disciplinary and grievance related issues or to investigate whistleblowing concerns which have been raised by employees.
I work closely with clients’ HR teams to manage complex internal matters as they arise so as to help them to achieve the best possible result in the most practical yet sensitive manner. I also provide support with the drafting of internal documents such as contracts of employment and policies, and routinely advise on the drafting of settlement agreements.
I enjoy providing training to clients on a wide range of topics and have always received extremely positive feedback on my inclusive yet informative style of presenting.
