Mock Employment Tribunal - Acas West Midlands

27 Nov 2019 09:30 - 13:00

Location
Birmingham City Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BB

Overview
In collaboration with Irwin Mitchell solicitors, Acas West Midlands presents an interactive, informative and myth-busting event which will give you the opportunity, within a safe environment, to see how an employment tribunal works and how decisions are reached.

Business need
Attending a tribunal hearing can be a scary prospect. The estimated cost to employers of defending a claim at employment tribunal is around £10,000. Losing a claim may cost significantly more.

Some of the many questions asked by those facing the prospect of appearing at an employment tribunal include:
  • "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?"
Join Acas and expert employment lawyers, Irwin Mitchell solicitors as we lead you through the tribunal process via a role play scenario. As the evidence unfolds, you will observe witness cross examination and ultimately the judge will deliver their verdict.

You will have the opportunity to put your questions to the solicitors and learn more about Acas conciliation as an alternative to tribunal.

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