Expressing her anticipation for the conference, Sarah stated, “I am looking forward to learning all about the approach from the different EU countries on investigations, enforcement, and the role of the labor judge.

Her proficiency extends to conducting advocacy in the Employment Tribunal, where her insights and skills have been invaluable. Furthermore, Sarah has distinguished herself by designing and delivering bespoke employment law training sessions for clients across the UK, and her expertise has been sought after for contributions to numerous articles in national and local newspapers.

Sarah’s stellar reputation in the field of employment law is underscored by her inclusion in the Legal 500 2024 directory as a Leading Individual, affirming her standing as a preeminent figure in her field.

As Sarah King prepares to embark on this significant endeavor, her participation not only reflects her individual accomplishments but also underscores the excellence and expertise within the UK’s legal fraternity. Her forthcoming contributions at the European Labour Judges Conference are poised to enrich the discourse surrounding workplace equality and harassment, fostering greater collaboration and understanding across international legal landscapes.
