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?"


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 session 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 will lead you through the process via a role play scenario. You will see the witnesses under examination as the evidence unfolds, and ultimately the judge will deliver their verdict. You will also get the chance to say what you think the outcome should be.


Irwin Mitchell will field a team of expert employment lawyers who 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.


Acas will explain the alternatives available to attending tribunal provided via its conciliation service, and the new Early Conciliation procedures which are now mandatory.

Mind the gap: Gender, pay and attitudes to women in the workplace

This important conference brings together a wealth of industry experience and insight from experts who will focus on some of the behaviours and culture that can create disparity. They will share practical solutions to enable you to make your workplace fair and inclusive for all employees- and they will outline workable solutions for reducing any identified pay gap.
