Event Details

The Employment Law Special Interests Group (SIG) will be an interactive discussion led by Nicholas Kennan.  Nicholas is a barrister at Cornwall Street Chambers in Birmingham with a civil, employment and regulatory practice.  As a former solicitor, Nicholas understands that a barrister can be an integral part of the client’s legal team.

Nicholas has acted for both employees and employers in the employment tribunal in unfair and constructive dismissal claims.  

Although content to represent either party in an employment tribunal claim, Nicholas has generally acted for more employers; he is able to assist HR consultants or in-house HR managers by clarifying the law in an area which is constantly changing and advising on the commercial management of tribunal claims.

Nicholas also has experience of whistleblowing and discrimination claims, interim relief applications and advising employers in equal pay claims.

The topics for discussion are based around current/recent case law and are likely to include:

-          Employees with a “vocation” (teachers, nurses etc) and considerations during a disciplinary process;

-          Voluntary overtime;

-          A re-visit of workers and employees in light of recent outcomes.

Attendees of this session will be involved in an interactive discussion surrounding the above topics; a short presentation will initially be given by Nicholas and group discussions will then be facilitated.


The event will commence with informal networking at 6pm with tea, coffee and biscuits provided; the session will commence by 6.30pm and will end by 8.30pm.

 Free parking is available at the venue.
