Prior to joining Harrison Clark Rickerbys as a specialist employment lawyer, Rebecca gained 5 years experience working in-house at a large local authority in Greater Manchester. Whilst in-house Rebecca worked as a solicitor within the litigation team, predominately dealing with employment law matters.

Based in our offices in Hereford and the Wye Valley, Rebecca has significant experience of advising on both contentious and non-contentious employment law matters including:

  • Absence Management and capability issues
  • Discipline, grievances and dismissals (including advising upon numerous high profile cases where press and public interest is high)
  • Whistleblowing
  • Employment law as it relates to Local Authorities, schools and other public sector organisations
  • Restructures and redundancies
  • Family friendly rights (maternity, paternity, flexible working and shared parental leave)
  • Discrimination
  • Business transfers and TUPE
  • Contracts of employment and policies
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Employment law in the Defence and Security sector
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Employment Tribunal claims.

As a key member of the leading Employment Team in Herefordshire and the Wye Valley, Rebecca’s client base is made up of employers across a wide range of private and public sector organisations, including several local authorities and companies of all sizes, as well as charities.

Practical and down to earth, Rebecca often draws on her varied experience as an in-house lawyer in order to assist clients and to provide accurate, pragmatic and cost effective advice on all aspects of employment law.

Rebecca regularly speaks at events and seminars across Herefordshire, including at the firm’s regular breakfast seminars and shares her knowledge and experience of employment law and practice with employers at those events. Rebecca is also a leading member of the firm’s Defence, Security and the Forces team and regularly speaks at and holds events for contacts in that sector – which is clearly a key sector in Hereford.
