Personal details

Maitrise Droit des Affaires, Certificat Droit Social, LLM

I have been teaching in the department since 1995. Over the years, I have taught employment, European and French law as well as study skills. I directed the LLM Employment Law by distance learning for a number of years.

I am a member of the editorial team of the Bulletin de droit comparé du travail et de la sécurité sociale and had previously held a similar position for the International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations. I am also the UK representative of an academic European Network on Labour Law (EWL). I have been involved in the providing of training on atypical workers for the International Labour Organisation. I also acted as an expert for the European Trade Union Institute on projects relating to European Works Councils.

Research

My research focuses principally on Employment Law and European Social Policy, mainly workers' participation and employee representation. I am also interested in the regulation of atypical forms of employment, particularly fixed-term work.

Supervision

I am willing to supervise research students in any area of employment law and am happy to discuss research proposals with potential applicants.

Currently supervising

  • Julie McClelland, 'Can the reach of employment protection be extended to atypical working patterns through a unified concept of employee and employment contract?'
  • Robert Wilks, ‘Can the official recognition of sign language offer a solution to the apparent conflict between disability law and Deaf identity, and if so, how?’
  • Ruksar Sattar, 'Reconciliation of Work and Family Life in an Evolving United Kingdom Labour Market: A Role for Grandparents?'
  • Paul Taylor, ‘Past and Spent criminal convictions v employability: is the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act still fit for purpose’ (2016-2022)
