Hampshire employment law expert gains ‘influential’ ranking

A Hampshire employment lawyer has been independently named as one of the most influential leaders in his field of work.

Darren Tibble, Partner at Southampton-based DC Employment Solicitors, is featured in the inaugural Reward 100, a list of the top influencers in the ‘pay and reward’ industry.

As well as employment law, the roll call includes experts working in human resources, workplace pensions, career development, payroll and employee benefits.

The list was chosen by a panel of experts from the Payroll World organisation and revealed at its annual conference in London.

Darren, who presented on the subject of the ‘gig economy’ at the event, said. “My inclusion on the Reward 100 list demonstrates industry recognition of the importance of legal services in the workplace.

“That was very much the theme of my presentation given the raft of recent legal cases involving the status of employment rights at companies such as Uber and Deliveroo.

“My message is that employers should review their working relationships with self-employed contractors to ensure they are not falling foul of the latest judgements.”

Darren has extensive experience of employment tribunal work and areas such as redundancy, restructuring, discrimination and disciplinary matters.

He is personally cited as a ‘sound, experienced lawyer’ in the latest Legal 500 ‘industry bible’ which ranks and categorises law firms based on independent interviews with clients, counsel, professional advisers and other referrers of legal work.
