Practice notes

Kate is a principal associate in our HRPG group, specialising in both employment and pensions. Kate's experience across both disciplines provides her clients with a unique insight into the interface between the two subjects.

Kate regularly provides advice to both companies and trustees on a wide range of pension issues, including auto enrolment, salary sacrifice, scheme change, employment-related pensions issues such as age, sex and disability discrimination, pensions issues on TUPE transfers and equalisation.

Her non-contentious employment experience includes advising on changes to employment contracts (particularly when associated with pension scheme changes) and subsequent consultation obligations, redundancy exercises, employment status and discrimination issues. Since her qualification in 2006, Kate has advised on tribunal litigation claims relating to unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, discrimination and whistleblowing.

Kate is also a member of our International HRPG Projects Team. Kate regularly advises and assists clients with pension and employment issues spanning Europe, Asia and Africa. As part of this role, Kate has extensive experience of international engagements, cross-border working and benefit provision and multi-jurisdictional settlement agreements.

Kate is a regular speaker at Eversheds' public courses and seminars. Kate is also an annual speaker for CIPD.
