Employment & Equality

Jim has a busy employment law practice. He regularly advises and represents members of trade unions in their tribunal claims.

He has experience of cases involving unfair dismissal, TUPE transfers, whistleblowing, holiday pay, indirect and direct discrimination and discrimination arising from a disability.

Selected Cases

  • Eirian Morris v Carmarthenshire County Council: obtained significant damages following the unfair dismissal of a former ski centre coordinator at Pembrey Country Park in Carmarthenshire. Following a five-day hearing, the tribunal held that Mr Morris had been unfairly dismissed, but that he had not been dismissed as a result of his alleged whistleblowing disclosures.
  • P & Others v CMY: acted for the successful claimants in a heavily contested TUPE transfer case involving a group of nursery workers. The tribunal initially reconsidered its decision to find for the Claimants, but upheld that decision following written submissions.
  • Perratt v City of Cardiff Council: disability discrimination relating to Asperger’s Syndrome. Jim appeared before the Employment Tribunal where the judge considered himself bound to find for the Respondent due to the EAT decision in Griffiths regarding comparators. The case was overturned on appeal and remitted to the tribunal for a fresh determination.
  • J & Others v S: advised the claimant care workers in relation to a holiday pay claim.
