Thames Valley: IBB Law to host virtual mock employment tribunal

On Thursday December 10, IBB Law in partnership with Outer Temple Chambers, will be hosting an event in the form of a virtual mock employment tribunal hearing, which will deal with a claim for unfair dismissal (relating to redundancy) and pregnancy and maternity discrimination. Not only is this year’s seminar virtual but it’s also free of charge.

IBB-Mock-tribunalIBB Law have secured the services of Andrew Allen QC (part-time employment judge) and two barristers from Outer Temple Chambers for this event and, with actors and staff from IBB Law, this will form the cast of the mock employment tribunal hearing. The hearing will be as realistic as possible, and as many hearings are currently held remotely during the pandemic, it will provide delegates with an insight on how they operate in practice.

Employment tribunals have been around since 1971 and were designed to be non-legalistic, informal and inexpensive. Over the years there has been a significant change in the types of complaints tribunals deal with and an increase in the formality of hearings. If you are facing a tribunal claim or have ever wondered what a tribunal hearing involves, this is a perfect opportunity to find out from those who specialise in tribunal claims. The mock employment tribunal will cover all matters as if it were a real hearing, such as: the issues in the case, witnesses’ evidence, cross-examination, submissions and the decision.
