Mock Employment Tribunal: A Practical Process for Growing Businesses (Doncaster)

Date: Wednesday 19 September 2018
Time: 09:00- 14:30
Venue: Cast, Doncaster, DN1 3BU

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 clearly, 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 Tribunal, 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

This Masterclass will cover:

– 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
