Emily regularly advises on employment contracts and policy documentation, data protection, tricky grievances and disciplinaries, changes to employee terms and conditions, performance improvement, staff re-organisations and multiple redundancies.
Emily is experienced in guiding employers and employees to resolve disputes through the employment tribunal and High Court, judge-led mediation and ACAS conciliation. Over the years she has conducted the defence and pursuit of claims of unfair dismissal, discrimination, and whistleblowing.
She also conducts due diligence in relation to business sales and outsourcing transactions. She will set out a clear analysis of material employment law risks and give practical advice to help companies to negotiate the employment-related terms of agreement.
Many of the clients she works with have an international workforce and as a business immigration expert, Emily is able to help them to navigate sponsor licence applications to bring staff to the UK, on-going compliance with sponsor duties and the completion of illegal working audits.
Emily's broad expertise means she can help employers to deal with overlapping employment and immigration law concerns especially around recruitment, discrimination and termination.
Emily is currently on secondment to our Dubai office where she is supporting the development of our employment practice in the Middle East. The Dubai office covers all employment law matters relating to the UAE onshore area and its free zones including the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
