Mock Employment Tribunal

Mock Employment Tribunal

Legal Island, in association with Eversheds Sutherland, Ulster University and the Labour Relations Agency present... A Mock Employment Tribunal

What is this event about?
Employment tribunals are frightening for the uninitiated and far more formal than they were intended to be when they were created. Participants who fail to prepare must be prepared to fail. This workshop is a realistic mock tribunal, designed with employers and other witnesses inexperienced in tribunal procedures in mind.

What are the learning outcomes?
You will gain confidence from observing or taking part in a mock tribunal case, chaired by an experienced tribunal Chairperson. The morning sessions prepare you for the ‘live’ afternoon sessions, by studying ‘real’ application and response forms and many background papers, with the support of experts.

What will be covered?
A mock tribunal from start to finish:

  • Explanation of the format, background to the ‘case’ and allocating roles
  • Responding to a claim – Meeting with your representative, providing information and making witness statements
  • Conciliation in employment cases – Listen and learn
  • Outside the hearing – What to expect on the day
  • Inside the hearing – From oath to cross-examination
  • Inside the hearing – Summing-up and case stating
  • Reaching a decision – Understanding likely awards and costs, as well as feedback

Who should attend?
This is an ideal course for employers and other witnesses who wish to experience a realistic tribunal process in a safe environment.
