I am a solicitor in Bates Wells’ Employment Department.
I advise both employers and employees on a range of contentious and non-contentious employment law and HR issues, including discrimination and victimisation claims, collective redundancies, unfair dismissal, and capability and disciplinary procedures. I am fluent in French and Italian and also speak conversational Danish and Arabic.
This included advising on the appropriate procedure to address allegations of gross misconduct, dealing with suspension and sick leave issues, and negotiating the senior executive’s exit from the company.
I advised on a range of HR and employment issues, including legal obligations and best practice in the wake of recent developments (i.e. workplace harassment scandals and non-disclosure agreements), holiday pay in long-term sickness absence cases, and the wider restructuring of the organisation’s workforce.
