Dismissals & Employment Rights

We have barristers at every level who are experienced in claims arising out of the termination of employment and for breach of other statutory employment rights. In particular, our barristers have extensive experience of advising and appearing in claims of or involving:

  • Unfair Dismissal and automatically unfair dismissal
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Whistleblowing
  • Holiday and sick pay
  • TUPE
  • Flexible Working

Our barristers are frequently instructed to advise on jurisdiction issues such as employment and worker status as well as the territorial jurisdiction of the Employment Tribunal.  Devereux barristers have appeared in the leading House of Lords and Supreme Court cases on these issues: Autoclenz v Belcher and Lawson v Serco.

Many of our members write and contribute to Harvey on Industrial Relations and Employment Law (Lexis Nexis) and Contract Actions in Employment Law (Bloomsbury Professional and Employment Tribunal Remedies (OUP).

All areas of employment related work are undertaken, collective and individual.

A list of relevant cases and appointments is included within each individual barrister’s personal profile.
