Did you know that Employment Tribunal claims have risen by a staggering 90% since the abolition of the fees regime? This trend shows no sign of stopping, meaning it is vital for HR professionals to be able to advise their businesses about how Employment Tribunals work. To help refresh your knowledge of this area, City HR and Addleshaw Goddard are staging a Mock Employment Tribunal based around the dismissal of an employee for inappropriate remarks made on social media.
This event will give you the opportunity to experience an Employment Tribunal hearing first-hand in a safe environment. You will gain an understanding of the documents needed, the preparation involved and the process followed at the hearing itself. You will experience the emotions and arguments of both parties, including the cross-examination of witnesses by Talia Barsam and Kate Balmer, barristers from the popular employment law set, Devereux Chambers. You will also see the questions, insights, demands and deliberations of the Tribunal panel, led by employment law silk Andrew Burns QC, who will play the Employment Judge.
The Mock Employment Tribunal is a unique opportunity to gain valuable lessons to take back to your business – without having to pay out any compensation or suffer reputational damage!
