Event description

Description

Whether you are an employer, HR practitioner, line manager, or business owner/manager, you need to take proactive steps to mitigate the risk of claims being brought against you.


The latest Ministry of Justice figures (April to June 2019) show single claim receipts increased by 14% and outstanding caseloads by 19% (when compared to the same period in 2018).


Experiencing an Employment Tribunal first-hand will help you to understand the full trial process. You will gain valuable awareness of what is it like to give evidence, be cross-examined and re-examined.


You will also learn why cases go to tribunal, procedural issues resulting from how you conduct your investigations and disciplinary hearings, witnesses’ selection, preparing for the tribunal, the role of the judge and panel, the importance of presenting your case clearly, supplying evidence, settlements and handing tribunal forms and processes.


Scenario: Unfair Dismissal*

Claimant: Claire Black

Respondent: The Trumpton Corporation Limited


We will begin with an introduction to tribunal procedure and offer you a unique opportunity to gain insight on how an employment tribunal hearing runs in practice.


You will:

  • observe how the decisions you make in the workplace play out in a Tribunal hearing,

  • hear evidence from the Claimant and Respondent,

  • listen to cross-examinations,

  • have the opportunity to be part of panel deliberations,

  • listen to representatives making closing speeches,

  • hear the judgment being delivered.


Mock Employment Tribunal

David Faulkner, our Employment Tribunal Judge, sits in the East Midlands region and is a Principal Associate at Mills and Reeve LLP.
