What our employment barristers offer

39 Essex Chambers has a team of employment practitioners who regularly appear in employment tribunals covering all aspects of employment law.

Who our employment barristers act for

Our clients include both claimants and defendants from all areas of industry.

Our public sector clients include NHS trusts, local authorities and government departments.

Barristers at 39 Essex Chambers advise on:

  • unfair dismissal
  • discrimination
  • wrongful dismissal/breach of contract
  • transfer of undertakings
  • parental leave
  • redundancy
  • post-termination contractual matters, including disputes over garden leave, restrictive covenants and compromise agreements.

Employment law is a niche and emerging area of strength. It fits naturally with our established strengths in commercial law, disciplinary, regulatory and public law.

Chambers has a significant following from clients in the healthcare and public sector. Private clients’ instructions come from high-profile city firms as well as from a range of employment consultants and private companies.

We offer a flexible, comprehensive service which includes:

  • In depth knowledge of all areas of employment law: unfair and wrongful dismissal, all types of discrimination, equal pay, TUPE, trade unions, unlawful deductions from wages, Working Time Regulations, holiday pay, restraint of trade and internal employment policies and procedures.
  • Advice to suit your needs: quick advice by telephone or email, formal written advice, advice in conference, drafting or review of contracts, policies or procedures.
