The prospect of facing an employment tribunal can be daunting to say the least. Join Acas, Regional Tribunal Judge Barry Clarke, along with Aaron and Partners Solicitors for this interactive, informative and myth busting event. We will share our knowledge and tips, enabling you to prepare with confidence, as well as provide you with the experience of a full mock tribunal hearing.
Following the abolition of tribunal fees in July 2017 new claims to employment tribunals have risen by over 50%.
Employment tribunals can be time consuming, stressful and costly. It is therefore imperative for employers to be well prepared.
Delegates attending this event will have the opportunity to witness a full mock employment tribunal hearing, including witness cross examination, a Judge’s summing up and decision. They will gain a unique insight into Acas conciliation and how to get the most out of it. We will also look at the common mistakes that can lose cases, getting the best from your legal representative and some of the strategies that can help bring issues to a successful conclusion.
