Louise Benski, Solicitor, Employment

Louise Benski, Solicitor, Employment, Fieldfisher

I am a solicitor specialising in employment law, advising clients in a variety of sectors, including financial services and technology. I enjoy advising companies on how best to engage employees, avoid claims and save money.

I help clients to keep abreast of UK employment law changes so as to become leaders in employee relations, which I have done recently by updating the contracts, staff handbook and policies of a luxury UK retailer.

I have advised clients on a range of contentious matters and employment tribunal cases on unfair dismissal, discrimination and whistleblowing. I have also advised clients on non-contentious matters, including topics such as leave and holiday pay, sickness absence and family friendly rights.

I have spoken at the firm's TechKnow forum on the TUPE implications of outsourcing and have co-written an Employment Law Journal article on labour exploitation in the labour market.

In my spare time, I jog and seek out good food in equal measure. I love the outdoors, foreign travel and photography.
