Jodie Hill’s books showcase her expertise as an employment solicitor and passion for mental health and wellbeing.

Her latest release, A Practical Guide to Valuing Employment Discrimination Claims, written in partnership with Chelsea Brooke-Ward, is a comprehensive guide on how to value discrimination claims in the Employment Tribunal.

Published annually, this user-friendly guide is an ideal point of reference for lawyers and HR professionals alike.

What sets this guide apart is its unparalleled collection of easy-to-read valuation precedents. From age discrimination to racial harassment, this accessible toolkit summarises more than 160 cases in all the main prohibited conduct claims, along with guidance on how best to use case law to support a valuation.

However, this book is much more than just a list of precedents. Jodie and Chelsea also offer insightful strategies to put you and your clients in the best possible position.

Drawing on their years of experience in the field, they provide practical tips and tools to help you navigate the frustrating journey of valuing discrimination claims. This guide contains checklists, case summaries, and relevant legislation for easy referencing, making this guide an invaluable resource for both seasoned legal professionals and those new to the field.

Thriving at Life is an interactive wellbeing journal dedicated to helping you understand the importance of self-care, gratitude, sleep, healthy habits and much more.

After trying out many different wellness journals, Jodie decided to create her own, with all of her experience and knowledge surrounding looking after her own mental health and ADHD.

The first section of this journal is focused on the reader understanding the importance of sleep, forming habits and tips on how to be more consistent with self-care. This is something that Jodie believes is important to know from the outset to maximise the impact of using this journal.

The second half of this journal is your space to work through at your own pace. Before getting started, there is a section on how to use each page. There are 12 weeks’ worth of check ins, questions, daily reflections and more. You can use these in any order you’d like. Each week is different to get you thinking about certain aspects of your life and schedule that you might want to shift to better your mental health and wellbeing.

It doesn’t matter when you start journaling, this is perfect for first timers or prolific journalers. The key is just getting started.
