Description

Employment tribunals: how to win, why you might lose, and how to avoid them in the first place

Over the past few years, changes in the tribunal system placed significant barriers on individuals wishing to bring a claim after suffering what they believe to be discrimination in the workplace. The immediate result of this was that fewer individual claims were brought to Employment Tribunals.

However, Kuits has seen a noticeable increase in tribunal claims in the last six months, potentially due to the known “ambulance-chasing” methods of some law firms and HR consultancies as they attempt to replenish their declining tribunal fees. Whatever the reason, this trend has real potential to cause a headache for employers of all shapes and sizes.

All employers will agree that claims are a big deal: losing at tribunal can have a significant financial impact on a business, both in its immediate future and in the long-term, as it can open the floodgates for other claims to be brought; likewise, winning at tribunal can deter other employees from bringing a claim against an employer, as they perceive their chances of success to be diminished.

Therefore, in this latest seminar from the Kuits employment team, our experts will not only be offering vital insight into how to win at tribunal, but providing guidance as to the key reasons businesses lose. Due to its experience in representing both employers and employees in such cases, the team has a real understanding of both sides of the coin and can therefore offer a practical, balanced view based on actual encounters.

Perhaps most importantly, the team will also explore the most common pitfalls they see on a daily basis that lead to tribunal claims, helping you avoid the same mistakes and saving you precious time, money and stress.

Our team will be joined by John Crosfill, a barrister specialising in employment law with over 20 years’ of tribunal experience. John also sits as a fee-paid employment judge.
