Event description

Description

Our Mock Employment Tribunal Experience is back!

This event is designed specifically for anyone with staff management responsibilities including HR specialists, managers and company directors.

Our tribunal experience is perfect for you if:

  • You want to become more confident in understanding and handling an employment tribunal should the worst happen
  • You want to learn how to avoid the most common employer mistakes and how to procedurally and practically avoid a tribunal in the first place
  • You want to learn and share experiences and concerns in a safe, friendly and light-hearted environment

Due to popular demand, we have moved this year’s event to the Friarage Theatre at Yarm School, donating both the venue charge and a percentage of the ticket price to our nominated charity of the year, Community Campus.

Please note, there will be free parking at the venue as it is Autumn half term for the staff and pupils.

The event will start at 8:30 am with breakfast and networking, with the tribunal in session from 9:15 am sharp! We’ll end the day with the judge’s decision and a Q&A at approximately 12:00pm.

Scenario

In order to preserve its future, the long-established Endeavour Social Club needs to be modernised. Its membership is on the slide and the place is desperate for a full overhaul.

Jonny Nelson is recruited. He’s a hip bar manager brought in by the trustees to shake things up and bring the club up to date. Jonny and the club trustees brought in a raft of changes designed appeal to new, younger members. The Social club has been converted from a quiet club with regulars, to a fashionable brasserie. A cocktail menu, a change of name and alterations to the TV schedule have been implemented.

However, the changes are not popular with everyone.

The club’s long-serving steward, Ralph Rodgers, is unimpressed by the directions the club has taken and feels that he has not been consulted about the changes. Unsurprisingly, he does not see eye to eye with Jonny and feels he’s been brushed aside.

Ralph raises a grievance with the trustees over the changes and Jonny’s attitude towards him. Ralph does not feel the trustees deal appropriately with his grievance during a procedure that leaves a lot to be desired and, after his complaints are rejected, he promptly resigns.

Ralph brings a claim against the Endeavour Social Club for constructive (unfair) dismissal, and the parties end up in a hotly contested Employment Tribunal case.
