Please note that this event will start with tea/coffee and a bacon roll and an opportunity to network at 09.00, with the formal part of the meeting starting at 09.30.
The mock employment tribunal session is an exciting opportunity to witness how an employment tribunal is conducted with explanatory commentary provided throughout. Real advocates from Irwin Mitchell represent the parties and witnesses present their evidence before being cross-examined. The case to be decided is one of unfair dismissal and focusses on the very topical alleged misuse of social media in the work place. As part of the training the audience will also have the opportunity ask questions and vote on which party they believe should be successful.
