Jodie ’s Bio
I believe that everyone should be enabled to ‘Thrive’ in the workplace and at Thrive Law we’ll work with you to understand your business and offer the right solution in terms of employment law, mental health and well-being.
Having experienced poor management, and poor mental mental and specialised in employment law and mental health from a very early stage in my career, and cross qualified from a barrister to a solicitor, I have developed a significant understanding of this complex and ever-changing area of law, which impacts on both business owners and HR teams.
Therefore, at Thrive, in everything that we do we provide transparency, from our costs through to our jargon free approach. We understand that employment legislation and dealing with mental health issues in the workplace can be confusing, but our depth of experience means that we can support and guide you through the whole process.
We will give you just one contact for everything and ensuring continuity and minimal disruption to your business.
We value collaborative working, by working together we can help you to avoid or resolve difficult conversations amicably.
So why not get in touch and find out how we can support you or your business?
We have a range of packages to suit all sizes and types of business, from our basic package which is ideal for start-ups and small businesses, through to our Thrive Protect Premium package.
Our mission is to enable all businesses to Thrive and therefore the packages that we have developed ensure that even from the very basic, you have what you need to build a happy and successful workforce.
As a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, Part-Time University Lecturer and Private Tutor I always welcome public speaking opportunities to share my knowledge and experience on employment law, mental health and well-being.
Particular areas where Jodie can assist include:
There may be different considerations for individuals assigned to a country for several years compared to the need of individuals assigned for a few months, with different levels of remuneration, benefits and support; Gill can advise on the best course of action for each group.
As well as dealing with the personal tax aspects of working overseas, Gill can also assist employers with agreeing specific payroll procedures with HMRC to make the operation of the UK payroll as smooth and pain-free as possible. In addition, she has expertise in determining the correct social security treatment of an individual’s move into or out of the UK, whether for a short or long period.
HMRC has a CEST tool which considers what status an individual might have from a HMRC perspective. But HMRC and the Tribunal do not always have the same tests and considerations, and do not always have to come to the same conclusions. This means that, whilst a HMRC might accept an individual’s tax status, there are some situations where a Tribunal may find that the individual was an employee or worker, affording them right to claim unfair dismissal/owed holiday pay/owed sick pay etc. These kinds of decisions would usually be made at a preliminary hearing at the Tribunal if there was a dispute about employment status.
The following factors are considered when deciding status:
- Mutual obligations
- Personal service
- Other activities
Employment status is complicated and at Thrive they have assisted numerous companies in disputing the status of their contractors when they’ve tried to raise employment tribunal claims.
