Employment in Regional Bar
Fenners Chambers' employment team is instructed at both the tribunal and appeal stages of cases, covering the full range of employment matters including discrimination, harassment and constructive dismissal.
Old Square Chambers is home to whistleblowing expert Jack Mitchell, whose notable recent cases include Royal Mail Group v Jhuti, which has progressed to the Supreme Court - the case concerned the test to be applied when the actions of a co-worker can be considered to be an action of the employee in a whistleblowing case.
Six Pump Court is particularly notable for its presence in appeals work. Gordon Menzies is a key name to note - he represented the employer in Heskett v Secretary of State for Justice, which concerned pay progression policy for probation officers. Other areas of specialism for the employment team include TUPE and age discrimination.
