Caitlin Farrar lawyer

Caitlin specialises in all aspects of employment law. In Employment Tribunal claims she represents both employers and claimants, including senior executives and trade unions, and she also provides legal advice in non-litigious contexts.

Caitlin has a strong practice in Court and Tribunal work with experience in disputes in relation to TUPE, claims arising in the context of large-scale redundancies, claims relating to blacklisting, unfair dismissal, trade union detriment, and High Court injunction applications in relation to proposed industrial action. Most recently she was successful in the defending the appeal of the strategic employment status claim of Lutz v Ryanair DAC and Storm Global in the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

On the advisory side, Caitlin advises on a wide range of employment-related matters from handling grievance and disciplinary procedures to senior executive exit strategies. For senior executives, she advises on the negotiation of exit packages involving complex bonus and incentive schemes, disputes and investigations in contentious exits, and on restrictive covenants and team moves. As such, Caitlin is equally adept at advising both employers and executives in a dispute or negotiation.

Separately, Caitlin has experience in supporting organisations, such as faith organisations and schools, in meeting their safeguarding obligations. She provides safeguarding advice and training on how to create and maintain a safe organisational culture, as well as handling of safeguarding crises.

Caitlin regularly writes articles for the Employment team’s WorkLife blog and works pro bono in the Mary Ward Legal Centre’s employment law clinic. She is a member of the Industrial Law Society and sits on the Employment Lawyers Association’s Pro Bono Committee.
