Discrimination can be a scary concept to deal with when it is asserted by employees, because of the financial and reputational consequences of a successful claim. This session will look at the key concepts and defences, drawing on recent case-law in the area.
Chris qualified as a Solicitor in 2018, and his work covers a mixed caseload of both contentious and non-contentious matters. His litigation experience includes defending all manner of Employment Tribunal claims, with a particular emphasis on unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, TUPE and claims under the Equality Act 2010.
Chris has extensive experience in all aspects of the Employment Tribunal process, from providing advice during the initial Acas Conciliation right the way through to undertaking his own advocacy in the Tribunal.
Melissa advises on all aspects of employment law. She has a strong Tribunal claim leaning and uses her skills and insight from acting for employees to the benefit of our employer clients. She also has significant discrimination experience, and carries out policy drafting and reviews disciplinary/grievance outcome letters (amongst other things). She is also a fluent French speaker.
