1MCB has a small team of dedicated employment and discrimination barristers with expertise across the full range of employment law issues. Members of Chambers have particular expertise at representing in employment cases with a strong cross-over aspect, for instance in public sector discrimination cases, cases with a European law dimension and commercial employment law (such as restraint of trade, fiduciary and breach of confidence issues and bonus/share option disputes).
Members of Chambers represent individuals at every level of employment and act for both respondents and claimants. We advise across all industry sectors and act in insurance funded cases, for Trade Unions and for private clients. We are happy to act for clients across the range of cases, from straightforward unfair dismissal to complex equal pay matters.
Members of 1MCB regularly act for clients in non-employment discrimination matters including discrimination in Part IV EqA 2010 housing cases, public sector discrimination and related judicial review, school SENDIST cases, and County Court matters including goods and services discrimination and Higher and Further Education discrimination.
Members appear regularly in proceedings before disciplinary tribunals such as the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the General Medical Council, the General Pharmaceutical Council and the General Dental Council.
