Live mock tribunal explains pitfalls for employers

Ipswich, East Anglian: Law firm Prettys is holding a mock employment tribunal hearing on the 15 September to help employers understand an employment tribunal hearing – without having to attend the real thing.

The event is free and open to human resource and other senior managers, company directors and owners. The event will be a reconstruction of a tribunal hearing in which a fictitious case will look at issues of unfair dismissal, disability discrimination, extension of time limits, sickness absence and unlawful deduction from wages.

Experienced barristers, Clare Harrington and Daniel Hobbs, of 13 King’s Bench Walk, London will join staff from Prettys employment team’s  three offices in Ipswich, Chelmsford and Cambridge.  They will act out an employment tribunal hearing, with solicitors and trainees from Prettys taking on the roles of the claimant, the respondent’s witnesses and the judge.  Harrington and  Hobbs will act as counsel for either side.  During the hearing, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Kelly Sayers, partner at Prettys, says: “Demonstrating a case in this true-to-life way will benefit attendees by showing them what they can expect in this type of situation. Employment tribunal hearings can be quite complex, so seeing the process, what is required and how documents are dealt with should really help in preparation for a case.”

This free event takes place on 15 September 2011 at DanceEast, Foundry Lane in Ipswich. Registration is from 8.15am, with the tribunal commencing at 8.45am and finishing around 11.45am. Places are limited, but anyone wishing to attend should email, confirming their name (and the names of any colleagues who wish to attend), their job title and their company.
