Lydia Seymour acted for the appellant in London Underground Limited v Amissah & Others – a rare Court of Appeal (CoA) consideration of remedies under the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), and specifically the liability of hirers in circumstances in which an employment agency goes into liquidation.
This case raises some interesting points below:
Please read more about the case in the judgment here.
Lydia Seymour has a specialist pensions and employment law practice. She has been recognised by the legal directories as a leading junior since 2005 and is listed in both the employment and pensions categories.
Her practice includes all aspects of ‘black letter’ pensions law, including: de-risking, rectification, withdrawal arrangements in multi-employer schemes and trustee duties. Her clients include the Pensions Regulator, employers, trustees, trade unions and individuals.
Lydia also acts in claims of professional negligence arising from actuarial and legal advice to pension schemes, including cases in which allegations of breach of duty have also been made in respect of professional or lay trustees.
Given the dual nature of her practice, Lydia has developed a particularly strong reputation in the areas of crossover between pensions and employment law, and she is instructed in many of the leading cases in this area, particularly those which raise issues of age or sex discrimination in relation to pension provision, TUPE and breach of trust and confidence.
