My work

Employment law

Leslie specialises in the law on employment, including equality, whistleblowing, unfair dismissal, holiday pay, worker status, breach of contract, restraint of trade and TUPE.

She has succeeded in many high value claims, acting on behalf of Claimants but in addition has successfully defended many cases on behalf of Respondents, including private organisations, NHS Trusts and Borough Councils. She is also instructed on large union backed cases. She recently succeeded in a TUPE claim obtaining in excess of £100k for the Claimants and another TUPE claim obtained £72k in compensation.

She has recently been instructed on a case where the Claimant has a claim in excess of £1million but also represents Claimants who have smaller claims against Respondents.

Leslie is a member of ELAAS and frequently is instructed to appear in the Employment Appeal Tribunal. In December 2019 she was instructed in three appeals in the EAT and earlier in 2019 obtained permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal.

She also drafts documents and advises on employment issues including advising and attending some internal disciplinary proceedings for various organisations.
