Partner in the employment and pensions team
I am a partner in the employment and pensions team. I support a range of not-for-profit, charitable and commercial organisations providing complex and strategic advice to HR directors and senior executive teams. I have particular interest supporting health and social care sector. I am approachable and quickly build strong relationships with clients, who say I am ‘pragmatic’ and provide them with ‘business-focused solutions’.
I regularly provide strategic support with changing terms and conditions, TUPE, the National Minimum Wage, and complex employee relations issues including whistle blowing and discrimination allegations as well as senior executive departures. I have recently supported the United Kingdom Homecare Association, National Care Forum and Voluntary Organisations Disability Group with addressing the social care sector specific National Minimum Wage issues, in relation to sleep-ins and travel time. I also represent clients in employment tribunal proceedings.
