Mock Employment Tribunal - The Vista Way!
Wed 28 June 2017, 08:30 – 12:30 BST
Have you ever been to an employment tribunal? Do you find the prospect daunting? The preparation...the formality...the cross examination..? If so, let us help!
Vista is running a FREE of charge mock employment tribunal on Wednesday 28 June 2017 at The Lowry, Manchester, to help you experience first-hand the employment tribunal process, the issues that could arise during a case and how an employment tribunal may deal with them.
Imagine you are Jack Potts, a long standing employee at the head office of a widget manufacturer aggrieved that your new manager, Helen Highwater is trying to make changes when she knows nothing about the Company, nothing about the team and certainly nothing about you. After 17 years’ service, she sends you to archiving ‘because you are best suited for that kind of job’.
What would you do if you were the employer? Helen is new to the role and appears to respect Jack’s expertise but you can see she wants to shake things up and make improvements for the better. Jack’s being difficult and obstructive but Helen said she certainly hasn’t singled him out because of his age...or has she?
Our mock tribunal will see attendees split into three groups – will you be Team Claimant? Team Respondent or Team Employment Judge?
You will have the opportunity to explore this real life case with your team before all coming together to watch witnesses give evidence and be cross examined by the Vista team. Team Employment Judge, with your help, will make a decision on the evidence – has there been direct discrimination and/or harassment on the grounds of Jack’s age? You decide!
The half-day session (starting at 9am) is a fantastic hands-on opportunity for all those who may have to attend an employment tribunal to develop your knowledge. It will give a real insight into how decisions are made and how actions taken can very easily become key features of a tribunal hearing.
Come and join us and see for yourselves!
