She advises extensively on a wide range of issues, including executive terminations, general employment-related issues such as redundancy programmes, varying terms and conditions, disciplinary and collective matters, and she has a great deal of experience on union recognition matters, including appearing at hearings before the Central Arbitration Committee. She has recently been involved in advising a number of clients on their gender pay gap reporting obligations.
