Employment and discrimination

Daniel’s interest in Employment and Discrimination law began before he was called to the Bar and he undertook a unique pupillage scheme, which involved spending six months at the Free Representation Unit (‘FRU’), representing Claimants in the ET, prior to undertaking 12 months in chambers.

Daniel has broad experience of ET proceedings, including expertise in unfair/constructive dismissal, wages, breach of contract and whistleblowing claims. He is frequently instructed in discrimination claims, having been involved in cases concerning almost all types of ‘prohibited conduct’ and protected characteristics. He is also experienced in handling claims involving multiple Claimants and/or Respondents. In light of this experience, Daniel has been instructed in relation to goods and services discrimination claims.

Daniel also has experience of acting for both Claimants and Respondents in TUPE claims including failure to inform and consult claims and Regulation 7, unfair dismissal claims. He has represented a group of Claimants in a hearing to determine the identity of their employer following a relevant transfer and a Claimant arguing that the reason for her dismissal was a TUPE transfer 10 years before the effective date of termination.

Daniel has appeared before the EAT on numerous occasions including several Rule 3(10) hearings and five full hearings including:

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust v Dearing & Others UKEAT/0344/16/LA

Daniel represented three Claimants in an appeal concerning the law on victimisation (section 27 Equality Act 2010). The appeal was brought by the Respondent against three successful claims. The EAT dismissed the appeal in respect of one of the claims and remitted the other two claims back to the same ET.

Beaumont v Costco Wholesale UK Ltd UKEAT/0080/15/DA

Daniel represented the Claimant in an appeal against the ET’s judgment dismissing his unfair dismissal claim. The EAT allowed the appeal and ordered a fresh hearing of the unfair dismissal claim before a differently constituted ET.

Dr Rajaratnan v Care UK Clinical Services Ltd UKEAT/0435/14 & UKEAT/0076/15

Appeal involving various legal issues including indirect sex discrimination and costs.

Thomas v Samurai Incentives and Promotions Ltd UKEAT/0006/13/RN

Appeal concerning the principles governing applications to amend an ET1.
