“How many witnesses will we need to bring?”


These are just some of the many questions people ask when facing the prospect of appearing at an Employment Tribunal.


This event promises to be an informative, enjoyable, myth-busting and interactive day for all delegates. It will give you the opportunity in a safe environment to see how a Tribunal works to watch a mock tribunal take place and to see how decisions are made.

“How many witnesses will we need to bring?”


These are just some of the many questions people ask when facing the prospect of appearing at an Employment Tribunal.


This event promises to be an informative, enjoyable, myth-busting and interactive day for all delegates. It will give you the opportunity in a safe environment to see how a Tribunal works to watch a mock tribunal take place and to see how decisions are made.


Irwin Mitchell solicitors led by Glenn Hayes will lead you through a role play scenario leaving you to decide the outcome.


Glen and his team of expert employment lawyers bring much experience of dealing with Employment Tribunal claims, and attendees will be able to put questions to the solicitors involved during the course of the event.

I'm an employer......get me out of here - Mock Employment Tribunal

Whilst the challenge faced by Claimants and Respondents might not be quite as daunting as those faced by celebrities in the jungle, attending a tribunal hearing can still be a scary prospect.

“I don’t know what to expect – how do tribunals work?”
“What if they ask me a question I can’t answer?”
"What sort of evidence do I need?”
“What if the Judge doesn’t like the way we have done things?”
“How many witnesses will we need to bring?”
