Policy, contracts, drafting recruitment procedures and staff handbooks

Our employment law barristers advise in relation to the drafting of employment contracts including the information technology sector and Richard Barraclough QC is well known for his work in this area.

A large part of chambers employment work concerns matters of policy and extends beyond the drafting of recruitment procedures and staff handbooks dealing with matters such as pay and discipline to teaching and advising in relation thereto. This work is not confined to the private sector and includes a substantial amount of work with local authorities.

Further Mukhtiar Singh acted as a Chair of a staff support association which provided evidence for the Claimant in R (on the application of Sarika Angel Watkins-Singh) v The Governing Body of Aberdare Girls High School), in which a schoolgirl successfully argued her right to wear the Sikh bangle.
