Mock Employment Tribunal – proves popular as additional dates added

Published: 30/09/13

Acas has developed a series of Mock Employment Tribunals because defending such claims can be a daunting prospect for any organisation. These sessions have been designed to help employers improve their understanding of the system and processes involved by replicating what actually happens.

Run in collaboration with Lyons Davidson, this provides the opportunity, in a safe environment, to see how a Tribunal works, watch a mock tribunal take place and to see how decisions are made. It offers an informative, enjoyable, myth-busting and interactive day for all delegates.


Business need

If you receive a notice of hearing from the employment tribunal – these are just some of the many questions people ask when facing the prospect of appearing at an Employment Tribunal.


"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?"

Appearing at Tribunal can feel like a daunting proposition even if you do have confidence in your case. During 2011/2012 there were over 186,300 claims to Employment Tribunal. According to the 2007 Gibbons Review of Dispute Resolution, the estimated cost to employers of defending a claim at Employment Tribunal was £9,000.

An understanding of the role Acas play in resolving workplace disputes may help in avoiding Tribunal proceedings, whilst the expertise of Lyons Davidson will give a clear perspective of what to expect if a claim does get that far.

Lyons Davidson will take you through a full Employment Tribunal unfair dismissal claim from receipt of an ET3 form to the judge's decision.

Nick Jones, Employment Partner and his team of expert employment lawyers will share their experiences from dealing with hundreds of Employment Tribunal claims and will show you what to expect should you have to appear at an Employment Tribunal including; the layout, the roles of those involved, the presentation of evidence and the cross examination of witnesses before concluding with a judicial decision and the reasoning behind that decision.

The event will also give a realistic view of the role of conciliation in an employment dispute and an Acas conciliator will take you through the conciliation process and the reasons why a settlement may be reached before a claim reaches Tribunal.

Delegates will also be able to put questions to both Acas and Lyons Davidson employment experts during the course of the event.
