Mock Employment Tribunal

FSP were delighted to have joined with the expert team at Devereux Chambers for this Mock Tribunal experience. Hosted by Partners Katie Burley and Ian Machray, members of our employment team played the role of witnesses in this lively fictional scenario. From Devereux the team were joined by Alice Mayhew KC acting as Employment Judge, plus Samuel Nicholls and Hitesh Dhorajiwala, who brought their impressive experience to the session, putting the witnesses through their paces on the virtual stand.

This 2 hour Mock Employment Tribunal experience provides invaluable experience of what witnesses can expect when giving evidence at an employment tribunal as well as being a fantastic opportunity to see how final hearings operate and how decisions are reached. It is essential viewing not only for employers and HR professionals, but would also greatly benefit those with line-management/decision making responsibilities as they are often called upon to be witnesses.  Anyone who deals with employment processes such as disciplinaries, grievances and redundancy procedures, or manages a team of any size would find value in familiarising themselves with the tribunal process.

Please note: While the legal principles being considered in this case have been genuinely applied, the scenarios, characters and content of documents are entirely fictional and created for the purpose of this event. Any similarities between this ‘case’ and any others that may have been before a tribunal is unintentional. The ‘actors’ are playing the roles given to them and any views expressed by those characters, whether during cross examination or otherwise, should not be taken as the personal views of those individuals, our firm or of Devereux Chambers.
