Mock Employment Tribunal: A Practical Process
Over the last years many employers have faced budgetary cuts and economic uncertainty. With fees having been abolished, the prospect of defending troublesome Employment Tribunal claims can cause apprehension and concern.
The prospect of going to an employment tribunal can be daunting. Unless you have done it before, it is difficult to imagine what it is like to be examined and cross-examined, to present a case cogently, and supply evidence to a judge and panel.
Attendees will be able to watch the Claimant and Respondent go head to head in this practical demonstration of a tribunial, and pick up tips on how they can avoid the Tribunal themselves.
The session will run as follows:
- 9.00 - Registration and coffee
- 9.30 - Introduction
- 9.45 - Mock Tribunal
- 12.30 - Decision and Questions
- 1.00 - Network Lunch
Pleadings and witness statements will be provided to attendees in order to allow the proceedings to be followed.
The witnesses will give evidence (as they do in real employment tribunals) and will then be cross-examined by one of the highly experienced team barristers.
After the evidence there will be submissions and then a detailed discussion of the issues and finally the outcome.
All attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the employment law specialists and the barristers in attendance during the Q&A session.
The Masterclass will look at:
- Brief introduction to the Employment Tribunal process
- An introduction to the claim to be ‘heard’
- The mock tribunal
- Practical advice on avoiding claims & what to do if a claim is issued against them
- Q&A session
