The increased demand for services and the launch of a scheme to give employment law and HR advice has led to a new appointment here at Richard Reed Solicitors with experienced dispute resolution and employment law solicitor, Kat Moody joining the firm.
Kat acts for both private and commercial clients on a range of issues including employment law, professional negligence, debt recovery, landlord and tenant work and contested probate and will be bringing these skills to Richard Reed.
At the same time she will also be at the forefront of driving our RR Protect initiative, which offers employment law and HR advice and support for an affordable fixed monthly fee.
Kat believes it is more important than ever for businesses to have sound employment law advice available to them, particularly in a post-Covid world where hybrid and home working have become the norm.
“The on-going impact of the pandemic means that employers have to take into consideration their staff’s health or what might be an employee’s disability,” said Kat.
“As well as having to comply with health and safety regulations for their staff, employers must also be careful that they are not discriminating against someone who has a disability – which can cover a multitude of conditions.
“Having the ability to get proper legal advice and support is what RR Protect is all about and it’s very exciting for me to work in this area.”
She added: “as someone who is originally from Sunderland, I was very keen to come back and work in the city and when the opportunity came to join Richard Reed I didn’t hesitate.”
Phil Moir said he was delighted to welcome Kat to Richard Reed.
“Our dispute resolution and employment law department is getting increasingly busy and with the launch of RR Protect, we are already seeing a number of businesses getting on board who recognise the value of this service,” he said.
“It’s the perfect time to have someone with the experience and knowledge that Kat has become part of our team and we know she will be a huge asset.”
