Following the introduction of Employment Tribunal fees in 2013 Government statistics showed that the number of claims dropped by 79%. With the abolition of those fees following the recent Supreme Court decision that they were unlawful it is inevitable that the number of claims against employers will begin to rise.
This highly interactive workshop is a must for any managers of employees who are the decision makers in disciplinary and grievance matters and appeals and who may be required to give evidence at an Employment Tribunal hearing.
This popular half day workshop provides delegates with an understanding of the legal and practical issues around Employment Tribunals.
Delegates will be shown excerpts from a recording of a very realistic mock Tribunal hearing in a misconduct dismissal to provide an understanding of the procedure at Employment Tribunal hearings and what it would be like to be a witness and give evidence under oath.
Reading material will also be provided to delegates in advance which will mirror the documents that will be available to witnesses during a Tribunal hearing. We will provide top tips on how to deal with questions – cross examination in particular – and how to enhance witness reliability and credibility.
Group discussion and an opportunity to ask questions will take place throughout. Delegates will be provided with a realistic Judgment at the end so that they can see the process from start to finish.
