An introduction to the Employment Tribunal Process

With the ever-increasing number of claims being issued in the Employment Tribunals, coupled with a decreasing number of cases being resolved in advance of a final hearing, having a good understanding of the Employment Tribunal process is essential for employers and HR professionals alike.

In this webinar we will look to take you through the key areas you can expect to encounter in a typical employment tribunal process, providing a compact introduction to matters (up to but not including the final hearing), such as:

  • Issues that occur before a claim is submitted, including engaging in ACAS Early Conciliation;
  • Early applications to the Employment Tribunal that can assist the management of your case;
  • The disclosure process;
  • Settlement negotiations – It’s all in the timing..; and
  • Witnesses – Who, how and where?

This webinar is live but will also be recorded, with a copy sent to registered attendees after the event. There will be the opportunity to ask questions and participate in our interactive polls during the webinar.

This is an essential webinar for all employers, HR professionals and internal counsel who are looking for an introduction to the tribunal process or a refresher on the topic. It forms the first part of our series on employment tribunal litigation – details of the second part, which will cover final hearings, will be released in due course.
