Jo is a Solicitor working in our Corporate & Commercial and Employment Law Teams, based in our Dorchester office.
I advise both employers and employees on a wide spectrum of employment law matters including contracts of employment, termination of employment, redundancies, claims for wrongful dismissal, discrimination, harassment, and more.
I understand the challenges that businesses face in today’s dynamic employment landscape and seek to help employers navigate the web of employment regulations, minimise risks, and ensure compliance with ever-changing employment legislation.
Whether acting for the employer or the employee, I always act with efficiency and compassion to ensure that my client’s rights are upheld in termination negotiations and provide support throughout employment tribunal claims, minimising the inevitable stress from complicated proceedings.
I advise on share purchases and business transfers and the associated employment considerations facing both sellers and buyers. In particular, I understand that TUPE transfers can be daunting, often involving complex legal, and personnel considerations. My understanding of each step of business transfers gives me a holistic approach to pre-transfer due diligence, contract analysis and negotiation.
Amongst other things, I am experienced in advising counterparties in all aspects of Settlement Agreements, drafting employment contracts, policies and consultancy agreements, advising on grievance and disciplinary matters, ACAS early conciliation and Employment Tribunal claims and the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
