Jeya Thiruchelvam joined the XpertHR editorial team after a six-year spell in private practice as an employment solicitor. She graduated from Cardiff University in law and politics and decided to qualify into employment law because it is people focused with a political dimension. She has a particular interest in sex, race and disability discrimination law and the other more human aspects of employment law. Before qualifying as a solicitor she worked on the North Wales Child Abuse and Bloody Sunday public inquiries. As a solicitor she gave regular training seminars and frequently wrote for local and regional publications about developments in employment law.
