Employment Tribunals: An Insider's Guide

Facing an Employment Tribunal can be a daunting prospect.  From settlement negotiations to compiling evidence bundles, witness preparation, getting the best from your representatives and the hearing itself, the matter can be costly, time consuming and stressful.

Join Acas and the employment law team from Irwin Mitchell at this unique event to get our top tips and expert insight into handling employment tribunals at every stage of the process.

Discover the common mistakes that can lose cases, learn how to get the best from your legal representatives, and find out the strategies that can help you bring issues to a successful conclusion – through Early Conciliation or at the hearing.

As part of the day you will get the opportunity to witness a full mock employment tribunal hearing including witness cross examination and a decision and summing up by a Judge - giving first-hand experience of how an Employment Tribunal works, all in a safe environment in which you can ask questions of the barristers, witnesses and Judge, and find out how decisions are made.

You will also gain a unique insight into Acas conciliation and how to get the most out of it.

Please note: we are expecting this event to sell out quickly.  Book early to secure your place.
