Mock Tribunal Workshop

Mock Tribunal Workshop

It is not uncommon for Organisations to be the subject of a Tribunal Claim such as unfair dismissal, discrimination on grounds of sex, race, religious belief, whistleblowing etc. The whole Tribunal process from receipt of the Claim to giving evidence and appeal can be a daunting experience. Through the use of simulated Tribunal proceedings, this Mock Tribunal Workshop will provide Delegates the opportunity to improve their understanding of the legal and practical aspects of how the Industrial and Fair Employment Tribunals work and also help prepare for possible future Tribunals.

Who should attend?
This half day Workshop will be of benefit to all HR professionals and managers who regularly chair disciplinary and appeal hearings, grievances to include complaints of bullying and harassment. It will also benefit those who have responsibility for overseeing the Organisation’s Tribunal cases.
