On 3 September 2015 Gordon Dadds hosted the launch event for the Employer’s Guide to Judaism, created and published by the Board of Deputies of British Jews. The special guest speaker for the event was the Right Honourable Iain Duncan Smith, MP, with Gordon Dadds very own Marie van der Zyl also speaking in her capacity as Vice President of the Board.
The handbook which was launched is a practical guide for employers, and indeed useful to employees, outlining the different ways in which the practice of Judaism may impact on or affect the workplace, and practical tips for dealing with this.
An article has been published on this event in The Jewish Chronical Online which is available here.

I am a partner in the employment team at Gordon Dadds. After graduating with a law degree from what is now Liverpool John Moores University, I began my legal career at Booth & Blackwell, where I was made partner. I joined the Gordon Dadds team in April 2014 from Davenport Lyons where I had held the role of partner and head of employment for over ten years. I have acted on all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment cases, including unfair dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination, collective redundancies/business reorganisation and TUPE.
