Employment

Sadiq Vohra

Principal Lawyer and Practice Group Leader - Employment Law

I‘m proud to be leading an experienced team who are passionate about and committed to the cause of workers’ rights.

Expert profile of Sadiq Vohra

Get to know Sadiq

I have worked in the legal sector since 1997 and qualified as a solicitor in 2000. I became part of Slater and Gordon in 2015. I am a senior employment lawyer and practice group leader, heading the OMS employment department in Manchester.

I’ve worked with employee organisations such as trade unions for over 20 years. I specialise in advising them and their members on employment related matters including discrimination, whistleblowing and group litigation. I also advise on related civil matters such as human rights, data protection and unlawful arrest.

Career highlights

I’ve had many highlights of my career. One of my notable cases includes Perry's Motor Sales Ltd & Anor v. Lindley - Employment Appeal Tribunal [2008], in which it was held that a buyer of a business had automatically unfairly dismissed Ms Lindley for asserting a statutory right when it instructed the seller to dismiss her before she could be transferred to the buyer’s employment. Before she was employed by the seller, the employee had been employed by the buyer but had resigned and claimed constructive dismissal.

I also succeeded in a group claim against a multi-national for employees’ rights to contractual redundancy pay, resulting in judgment in the employees’ favour of over £600,000.

Recognition

I'm extremely pleased that our employment team in Manchester is recognised by the independent legal guide, the Legal 500, as Tier 1.

The extra mile

I speak Gujarati and some Hindi/Urdu and have commented on employment law matters in the media including BBC Radio. I’m also a member of the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA).
