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.

Course content

In addition to observing legal representatives cross-examine witnesses, the Mock Tribunal will provide practical advice on;

  • How to avoid employment Claims;
  • What steps should be taken as soon as a Claim is received;
  • Preparing for the case for Hearing;
  • Understanding the legal requirements of Discovery and collating documents;
  • Preparing a Witness Statement, what should it cover and how it should be presented;
  • How to prepare for cross-examination;
  • Key tips for effective presentation as a witness.

Documents and witness statements will be provided to participants in order to allow the proceedings to be followed closely.

The proceedings will be frozen at various points to allow step-by-step explanation of the process and to give the opportunity to ask questions.

Workshop participants will observe the proceedings and will be able to put forward their views on the evidence and the outcome.
