Natasha Joffe

In the field of employment and discrimination, Joffe has worked for a wide range of respondents and claimants. In particular she has represented a large number of local authorities and other public bodies (police forces, fire authorities and NHS trusts) in long and complex discrimination and whistle-blowing cases, sometimes involving senior officers. She has also frequently advised public bodies on higher-level policy matters such as the TUPE implications of various contracting arrangements and on the equal opportunities implications of policy decisions. Joffe has recently advised in a case involving retirement age of judicial officers. She has experience of restrictive covenants and injunctions and of advising on and acting in cases where employment relationships give rise to judicial review.

Joffe has also acted for union-represented claimants and for individuals in high-value discrimination cases. She acted for the successful claimant/appellant in Kelly v University of Southampton [2008] ICR 357 on the meaning of section 98(2)(d) of the ERA 1996 and the construction of immigration statutes. The matter was appealed to the Court of Appeal by the unsuccessful respondent but the appeal was withdrawn after exchange of skeletons.
