Ecclesiastical Law

EAD has, for many years, acted on behalf of members of Unite the Union in the Union’s ecclesiastical section.  Stephen Pinder and Graham Roberts have been involved in a number of cases, including applications to the Employment Tribunal, cases dealt with on appeal (Sharpe v Church of England) and also internal disciplinary issues within the Church.

If you are a member of any religious group and work for that organisation, you may need legal advice about your personal circumstances, for example your employment status or a dispute over the terms of your employment.

From a Claimant perspective, EAD has some of the most experienced solicitors working in this specialist area of law, and that experience will be available to you should the need arise.

If you need legal advice contact EAD and we will work with you on a basis to ensure that legal advice is both available and affordable.  In some cases it is possible to apply for legal aid through the Church, and every avenue of funding which is available will be considered.

EAD has provided advice to members of the Church of England, the Catholic Church, the Methodist Church and also we have advised Ministers of religion in employed roles, as well as members of other faiths including working with rabbis.
