Mock Employment Tribunal - digital event


Join Acas and employment law experts, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors as we lead you through a COVID-19 related mock employment tribunal.

This informative and myth-busting virtual event will give you the opportunity, within a safe environment, to see how an employment tribunal works and how decisions are reached.

Business need

The coronavirus pandemic has presented many challenges for employers. Employers continue to make very difficult employment decisions at a pace and with limited knowledge about what the future might hold. 

The consequences of getting it wrong can be costly. The estimated cost to employers of defending a claim at employment tribunal is around £10,000. Losing a claim may cost significantly more.

Delivered via Zooms, this event will cover a fictional COVID-19 related employment tribunal claim. 

During the event, you will be taken through a role play scenario with a claimant, witnesses, barristers and an employment tribunal judge. You will gain information on Acas’ alternative dispute resolution services and valuable insight on the employment tribunal process. 

NB: This scenario is different from any previously delivered.

Suitable For

Delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, Trade Union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.


This event is designed to facilitate discussion and interaction. It will be based on a fictional COVID-19 related health and safety discrimination case and will cover:

  • presenting a claim – the ‘bundle’
  • the importance of employment tribunal forms
  • alternatives to employment tribunal, including Acas conciliation, Acas settlements and COT3’s 
  • choosing witnesses
  • the role of the judge and side members 
  • preparing for the hearing
  • giving evidence
  • cross examination
  • potential outcome
  • burden of proof 
  • Tribunal awards and costs

As the evidence unfolds, you will observe witness cross examination and be able to put questions to the solicitors while awaiting the judge’s verdict.
