Emily works in the Hornsby office and was admitted as a solicitor in June 2018. She is a member of the Law Society of New South Wales.
Emily has a particular interest in employment law, having spent over two years working in employment relations, including federal and state jurisdictions. She previously worked as a Fair Work Inspector for the Fair Work Ombudsman and as an Employment Relations Adviser for the Motor Traders Association of NSW.
Her work background has provided her with strong analytical skills and a keen eye for detail in testing evidence provided by the client. As an example, as a Fair Work Inspector, she investigated a small business in suburban Sydney. The complainant was a 16-year-old in her first job, who kept her own records of hours worked, whereas the employer did not.
Using the employee’s records, Emily was able to test her claims and calculate an underpayment of $2500, over a period of three months. After being served the compliance notice under the Fair Work Act, the director paid the owed amount.
Emily is also very organised and likes to keep on top of things. These traits have assisted her in conveyancing matters, particularly in sales of businesses in which she is acting for the purchaser.
Outside of work, Emily is a painter and enjoys going to concerts. She also likes to give back to the community and regularly donates blood. She has made almost 60 donations and has a special matched patient that she gives blood to specifically every three months.
