Employment law is ever evolving, interesting and diverse; it is also all about people and I care about people – this is why I specialise in this field.
Working for employers and employees alike, I invest in every client’s issue with practical solutions to help achieve their desired outcome. It is my duty to be meticulous, friendly and transparent, so that clients are aware of any potential risks and to avoid minor problems becoming big ones.
From huge corporations to start-up businesses to individuals needing advice on a range of different employment issues, I offer a trusted and experienced approach. I negotiate and advise on settlement agreements, work on employment tribunal cases, corporate transactions and assist businesses with navigating their everyday employment relationships.
Outside work, I am a huge foodie with a passion for cooking and trying out new recipes. I also love to travel and explore; I love a good view!
Always seek legal advice sooner rather than later. A lot of problems can be avoided or at least mitigated if things are done on time.
If you have a business, ensure you have all the right policies and procedures in place to suit the needs of your business, and that employees are aware of them.
Keep proper and accurate records of all meetings. This helps in the event of any dispute.
How should the exit of an employee be managed?
Every matter is different and so the answer will be unique to your situation. We advise the early assistance of an employment lawyer so that this can be handled carefully to minimise the risk while still achieving your desired outcome.
Can I pay my employees holiday pay that is solely based on their basic salary?
Holiday pay should be based on normal remuneration. If you pay your employees regular overtime and/or bonus payments, then holiday pay should be based on all these aspects of pay. If not, there is a risk of an employee/employees bringing a claim for unlawful deduction of wages, and up to two years backlog of pay can be claimed. For large work forces, this can add up to a significant liability. The sooner this issue is rectified, the better.
