Called to the Bar in 1994, Naomi Cunningham spent a number of years working in London law centres before returning to independent practice in 2004; she joined OTC in April 2008.
Cunningham now acts for a mix of employees and large and small employers. She is occasionally instructed in goods and services discrimination, as well as in employment matters in the employment tribunals, the EAT and the Court of Appeal. She places an emphasis on demystifying the employment tribunal process for clients with prompt, clear and practical advice. Cunningham has particular interests in working time, holiday pay and the minimum wage, and employment in the public and voluntary sectors. She has been instructed in a number of multi-claimant equal pay cases.
Recent successes for Cunningham’s clients include a significant ruling by the EAT that an employee on long-term sick leave need not seek to ‘take’ a period of annual leave in order to be entitled to holiday pay; another ruling by the EAT that the employer’s duty to consider at a meeting an employee’s request not to be retired necessitated genuine consideration; and an award of interim relief.
