Shubha Banerjee's Profile Picture
Shubha has specialised in employment law for 18 years and has a strong track record advising individual claimants and trade unions on the full range of employment and discrimination rights including in respect of dismissal, unlawful discrimination, contractual issues, and collective issues including consultation.
 
She is currently pursuing claims for over 200 judges against the Ministry of Justice for unlawful discrimination.

Her team has also been instructed over the last four years by about 140 part time judges in respect of claims for a breach of the Part Time Worker Regulations in relation to pensions and other benefits, which has included a number of appeals to the Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal.

Before working at Leigh Day, she worked at a firm of solicitors that represented trade unions and its members for seven years, with three of those as a partner. She then moved to work in-house at a trade union for over five years, where her work included managing the union’s legal department and its legal services. Shubha has advised clients and run claims on all aspects of employment law. She also has extensive experience of multi-claimant cases.
