Details

The practical, two-day How to Prepare for an Employment Tribunal course uses case studies and examples to examine each stage of an employment tribunal claim, from receipt of the application to the hearing. It also includes the latest changes to tribunal rules, and will help you identify which cases to defend and which to settle, as well as build confidence to represent your own organisation or be an effective witness. A mock tribunal case study forms a key part of the course to illustrate how the law works in practice.

Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training.  Call our in-house training team to discuss your particular requirements on +44 (0)20 8612 6202.
