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 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 LLP led by Alan Lewis will lead you through a role play scenario leaving you to decide the outcome.


Alan 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.

Behaviours at work - understanding the unacceptable

Unacceptable behaviours, such as bullying and harassment or aggressive attitudes, can lead to increased levels of absence, staff turnover, and lower staff morale which can reduce productivity.


The effects of unacceptable behaviours are harmful to all concerned and potentially expensive for organisations with real reputation risks an issue.


This event provides delegates with valuable information about what constitutes unacceptable behaviour and bullying and harassment. We outline what the law says (in regards to the Equality Act) and the views of the Tribunals. We then look at the responsibilities you have as an employer and the implications for choosing not to address these issues.
