Louise Taft is an experienced specialist Employment Solicitor at Freemans Solicitors dealing with matters arising from the world of work, but with a particular interest in cases involving Pregnancy and Maternity Discrimination and rights afforded to parents and carers. She spent over 10 years dealing with such cases before having her own child in 2015, which has given her new insight and empathy with parents of young children juggling the stresses and strains of daily life with working life. She has dealt with Employment Tribunal claims on behalf of both employees and employers involving almost all aspects of Employment Law, including Unfair Dismissal, Constructive Dismissal, Discrimination and Harassment, Whistleblowing, TUPE, Redundancy, Breach of Contract, Holiday Pay and Deductions from Wages. She has represented clients in the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal as well as at first instance. As a Tribunal advocate, Louise is well placed to give clients early advice as to the prospects of success at Tribunal and the merits or otherwise of settlement as well as being able to ensure that cases are properly prepared in a way to best present the evidence to the Tribunal Judge.
