Guildford Chambers offers specialist advice and advocacy in individual and collective Employment Law.
Our barristers appear in Employment Tribunals across the country as well as the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal in relation to employment matters.
We can offer advice and support in relation to both contentious and non-contentious employment law issues.
Our employment barristers act for both employers and employees in the private, public and voluntary sectors, in cases concerning:
- Compromise agreements
- Disciplinary hearings and grievances, in both the private and public sectors
- Discrimination, victimisation and harassment on grounds of race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, age, religion or belief
- Equal pay and other remuneration issues
- Health and safety
- Industrial action
- Parental and maternity rights
- Part-time work and atypical work arrangements
- References and recruitment issues
- Unfair and wrongful dismissal claims, including constructive dismissal
- Whistleblowing claims and public interest disclosures
- Workplace stress and personal injury at work
Teachers, social workers, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and dentists are just some of the people answerable to professional conduct committees dealing with allegations relating to conduct and competence.
Chambers is able to advise on practice and procedure, draft position statements and represent professionals at hearings regarding fitness to practice. This may involve interim orders such as conditions of practice, as well as reviews and applications for Judicial Review in the High Court. Members also prosecute cases on behalf of regulators.
