Viewing: Employment for Alice Beech

Alice is a pupil at No5. Her supervisor is Jack Feeny.
Prior to pupillage, Alice spent two years in the legal department of a trade union, representing members in their employment tribunal claims. She has worked on claims for unfair dismissal, discrimination, TUPE dismissals, trade union detriment, unlawful deductions from wages, holiday pay and protective awards. She also worked as an immigration advisor and has drawn on this experience where immigration status has had a bearing on claims.
In pupillage, Alice has principally worked on discrimination, whistleblowing and TUPE matters in the ET and EAT featuring public sector respondents, such as NHS trusts and Government departments, as well as large private sector employers. She has also observed and assisted on a number of litigated matters on behalf of police officers involving police pensions and pay. She has experience of public law and personal injury cases in an employment context.
Alice has experience of drafting pleadings and witness statements, advising on settlement, and appearing in case management and final hearings. Outcomes for union members include an award of 28.5 weeks of wages where R had failed to dismiss or provide a member with work, a finding that a tiler was a worker and a five-figure settlement for a disabled hospital kitchen worker who had been suspended on full pay after taking sick leave.
Alice speaks French and Japanese.
