Alex works with clients advising them on all aspects of employment law from recruitment to termination and everything in between. Whether its drafting contracts and policies or running a fully litigated employment tribunal claim. Alex’s specialisms include pursuing and defending Equality Act claims on behalf of clients such as discrimination claims on the grounds of gender reassignment, race, and sexual orientation.

Alex was centrally involved in successfully defending a case in the EAT in the case of Science Warehouse v Mills UKEAT/0224/15. In this case Alex, on behalf of Ms Mills, had applied to amend to add a news claim (victimisation), which had post-dated the ET1. The Respondent objected on the basis that Ms Mills had not undergone the ACAS Early Conciliation (EC) process in respects of the new claim. The ET allow the amendment and the Respondent appeal. The appeal was dismissed . The EAT held that section 18A of the ETA 1996 does not require a prospective claimant to undergo the EC process in respect of each “claim” or “cause of action”; it uses the broader terminology of “matter”.

Alex is friendly and approachable, and is committed to providing her clients with practical and expert advice to get the desired outcome.
