Employment Law Update Seminar "Mock Employment Tribunal" - 5th November 2018

21 September 2018

Our last Mock Employment Tribunal on 7th June 2018 was an overwhelming success and Partners Employment Lawyers are now delighted to invite you to our next complimentary Afternoon Update to experience the theatre of an Employment Tribunal. The scenario will be based on a real case which we defended and will also feature the original barrister who represented the client at court!

Click on the video above for a clip of our most recent Mock Employment Tribunal. Following your feedback, we have incorporated a summing up session to discuss key aspects of the case at the end.

We highly encourage those delegates who make decisions in respect of staff to attend this invaluable learning session to gain an understanding of what an Employment Tribunal is really like. This is a highly interactive session which will encourage delegates to question their own decision-making.

For details of the event please see below.

Date: Monday 5th November 2018 - 2.00pm until 4.00pm

Venue: The Law Society 113 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1PL.

What to expect

As experts within this area who regularly appear in the Employment Tribunal, our mock Employment Tribunal will mirror tribunal proceedings and will give delegates the opportunity to:

  • understand how employment tribunals work (without having to face one in real life!)
  • a unique insight into how employment tribunals approach claims.
  • what it takes to persuade them to find for the employer.
  • the opportunity to participate fully in the proceedings.
  • Obtain a greater understanding of the implications of the process to feed back to your own business or organisation.

This is also a unique training exercise for business owners/managers, especially to stress the need to manage their staff properly and effectively.


By the end of the session, delegates will:

  • understand why HR advocate the following of proper procedures, and the need to properly manage staff.
  • understand the importance the Employment Tribunal places on procedure and reasoned decision making.
  • a chance to learn how to prepare for, present and defend a Tribunal claim.
  • build your confidence to prepare for any future Tribunals without risk to your business.

The session is fully interactive and encourages managers to question their own decision-making whilst also gaining an insight into how a tribunal might challenge their approach.

How will the session be structured?

  • Pleadings and witness statements will be provided to delegates in order to allow the proceedings to be followed.
  • The witnesses will give evidence (as they do in real employment tribunals) and will then be cross-examined by one of our highly experienced team barristers and questioned by the delegates.
  • After the evidence there will be submissions and then a detailed discussion of the issues and finally a vote on the outcome. This will be followed by a discussion about what has been learnt and why it’s important.
  • Delegates have the opportunity not only to question the witnesses but help decide the outcome and any remedy.

What previous workshop delegates say:

“Hina and her team recently delivered employment law sessions to our London management team which focused on a range of key employment law issues. Feedback was that the sessions were excellent, informative and well presented. They discussed actual case law as well as company-relevant scenarios based on their knowledge of our internal policies and procedures.”

‘’As an experienced HR Director it is critical to have expert employment law advice that you trust. Working with Hina Belitz over the past 5 years has been a breath of fresh air. Her professional consultative style has afforded me to make strategic decisions on difficult and complex employment cases. I find her open to different solutions whilst steadfast in her legal approach to different situations. Always offering guidance and flexibility towards the needs of the business and its cultural norms. I would not make any key legal decisions without her input.’’
