Employment and discrimination

Our Employment and Discrimination workgroup continues to reinforce its reputation as a major player in employment and discrimination with the recruitment of Daniel Barnett at the beginning of 2011 and Andrew Short QC’s Silk appointment in 2010. 

The appointment of Andrew Allen as a part-time employment judge in 2011 brought to four the number of members of the team who can bring this invaluable experience to bear on their practices; the others are Keith Bryant, Benjimin Burgher and Lydia Seymour.

Outer Temple barristers are at the forefront of development s in various areas of employment law, including equal pay, working time and holiday pay and whistle-blowing. Members of the team have been involved in the immense Birmingham equal pay litigation; and Andrew Short QC appeared in the Supreme Court and  ECJ in Williams v BA, (pilots’ holiday pay) and Mark Mullins in the ECJ in USA v Nolan (collective redundancy).

We prioritise commercial sensitivities in litigation and advisory work concerning business protection and employee rights, and provide advice and expertise in mediation, arbitration and other methods of dispute resolution.
