I joined the Employment Team at Bates Wells in March 2020 after being seconded to the Employment Team from a public body.

  • I have helped conduct litigation on behalf a black cab driver “gig economy” test case about the worker status of taxi drivers operating through an app and their entitlement to holiday pay and National Minimum Wage.
  • I have helped conduct litigation defending a claim for unfair dismissal against a global facilities management company.
  • I have prepared the employment contracts for workers and self-employed contractors for a higher education accreditation agency.
  • I have reviewed employment contracts and policies for a large national charity.
  • I advise both employers and employees on settlement agreements and assisting with without prejudice settlement negotiations at the pre-litigation stage.
