I’m an employer…get me out of here! Mock Employment Tribunal


Appearing at an employment tribunal can be a daunting proposition for any employer.

In collaboration with Flint Bishop Solicitors, this unique event will give you the opportunity, within a safe environment, to witness first-hand how an employment tribunal works and how decisions are reached.

Business need

After a turbulent few years, employers continue to make very difficult employment decisions at a pace and with limited knowledge of what the future may bring.

The consequences of getting it wrong can be costly. The estimated cost to employers of defending a claim at employment tribunal is around £10,000. Losing a claim may cost significantly more.

  • “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?”

These are just some of the many questions people ask us when facing the prospect of appearing at an employment tribunal.

Martin Cornforth, of Flint Bishop, will lead you through a role play scenario, leaving you to weigh up the evidence and decide the outcome.

Suitable For

Anyone with staff management responsibilities, particularly those involved in disciplinary matters, including HR specialists, line managers, owner managers, TU officials and lay representatives and those involved in representing staff at formal hearings.


During this event you will be witness to:

preparing for the hearing
giving evidence
cross examination
the role of the Judge (and Side Members where present)
burden of proof
Tribunal awards and costs

…….. and much more!
