Amelia Williams completes Advocate’s Pro Bono Pledge 2023 - Jun 2023
Employment & Equality
Amelia began her employment law practice by representing clients on a pro bono basis with FRU in the Employment Tribunals. Since then she has been involved in increasingly complex cases and has recently been instructed in a number of cases by the Government Legal Department as a junior to more senior employment law practitioners across a wide range of Chambers.
Recent cases Amelia has been involved in include:
- A case involving a claim of disability discrimination and failure to make reasonable adjustments arising from a number of medical conditions which was pleaded at over £1 million.
- A matter which pleaded perceived disability discrimination where the Tribunal found that although there was a perception that the Claimant was a disabled person by reason of autism, there were reasonable non-discriminatory reasons for the dismissal.
- An individual who was dismissed whilst abroad and on furlough during the Covid-19 pandemic which has given rise to a claim for unfair dismissal, race discrimination and victimisation.
Amelia has experience in representing and advising clients in employment disputes raising the following issues:
- Unfair dismissal
- Unlawful Deduction of Wages
- Constructive Dismissal
- Failure to make reasonable adjustments
