Employment law support

DAC Beachcroft law firm is our associate for all employment-related legal guidance and support.

Our key contacts, Philip Harman and Michelle Jenkins, have advised a number of students' unions, and they understand our sector and context well. Now joined by Sajida Hussain and Kim Freeman-Smith, they provide a range of services and support which are outlined below: 

  • Employment/HR Retainers covering things such as contracts and policies, disciplinary and grievance, absence, pay parity, ED&I, redundancy and settlement agreements.
  • 'Standalone' Projects such as TUPE, restructures and changes to terms and conditions.
  • Training including for line managers and trustees, and general employment law updates.
  • Independent Investigations including collective grievances, alleged misconduct and Officer/trustee disputes.
