With the abolition of employment tribunal fees in July 2017, Employment Tribunal claims against employers have soared as there is no longer a disincentive for employees to bring claims, even if the claims are weak with limited prospects of success.
To help all parties understand what is involved with the Tribunal process, our Employment Team is putting on an interactive Mock Employment Tribunal, focusing on an unfair dismissal case, which will take you through the conduct of an Employment Tribunal hearing from start to finish. In addition, we are delighted to be joined by two employment Barristers from St Philips Chambers who will put the witnesses through their paces on the witness stand, as the morning session unfolds.
In partnership with the East Midlands Chamber, this event is open for all to attend and will be a great chance to see how an Employment Tribunal hearing is conducted and to get an insight into an Employment Tribunal's decision-making process, without the stress of being involved for real!
The session will be chaired by Geldards’ resident Employment Tribunal Judge, Stephen Jenkins (who sits as a fee-paid Judge in the Reading Tribunal region) who will give delegates the chance to see how Tribunal Judges approach the issues in dispute in arriving at their Judgment.
Finally, we will also be providing an employment law update to round up important cases and developments from 2018 and looking forward to what 2019 may hold for HR practitioners.
We look forward to seeing you there and please book your place to ensure you do not miss out on this very popular event!
