With clients from major retailers through to educational establishments, public sector organisations, global manufacturers and those trading in the energy & natural resources sector, our employment team brings niche expertise tailored to the sector in which you work. We take the time needed to get to know you and your organisation. Understanding your commercial ethos and goals is important to us, as is asking the right questions so that we get to the heart of the problem as quickly and effectively as possible.
We provide clear, practical advice on all areas of discrimination including goods and services, policy drafting and advice on avoiding claims. When claims are received, we have wide experience of defending discrimination claims of all types. Whether you are facing complex, brand sensitive employment litigation in relation to an allegation of age, sex or religious discrimination, taking steps to address disability discrimination or reviewing your organisation wide practices as a whole, our legal experts are some of the most highly experienced and respected in the industry.
In particular, we advise a number of clients on equal pay issues and have been involved in litigation relating to the determination of test issues of national importance. We regularly advise and represent clients in relation to complex equal pay claims, both in the employment tribunal and in the appellate courts. We negotiate and structure the settlement of equal pay claims. We conduct assessments of equal pay risk and advise on job evaluation schemes. We have experience of advising clients on issues raised by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
We work hard to help you drive forward diversity and inclusion on a practical level and, as a result, to improve growth and profit return.
