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


Appearing at an employment tribunal can be a daunting proposition for any employer.

In collaboration with Shakespeare Martineau, this unique event will give you the opportunity to witness first-hand how an employment tribunal works, within a safe environment and without the risk of the real thing.

Business need

Following the abolition of tribunal fees in July 2017 new claims to employment tribunals have risen by over 50%.

  • "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 us when facing the prospect of appearing at an employment tribunal.

Shakespeare Martineau will take you through the role play scenario with an acting judge. 

This event promises to be an informative, enjoyable, myth-busting and interactive day for all delegates. The event will replicate as closely as possible a real tribunal hearing and delegates will be able to put questions to the professionals involved throughout the day.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For

Anyone with staff management responsibilities, particularly those involved in disciplinary matters, including HR specialists, line managers, owner managers, TU officials and lay representatives and those involved in representing staff at formal hearings.


During this event you will be witness to:

  • preparing for the hearing
  • giving evidence
  • cross examination
  • the role of the Judge (and Side Members where present)
  • burden of proof
  • Tribunal awards and costs
    ........ and much more!
