The number of employment tribunal claims has been on the rise. With the employment challenges of the economic downturn, this trend looks set to continue. Many employers are now having to deal with the often unfamiliar area of employment tribunal litigation. The stakes, both financial and reputational, can be high.

We invite you to join us for our seminar on 29 June, where Christopher Fisher and Jennifer McGrandle will focus on how to handle employment tribunal claims. They will provide an overview of the tribunal process, from the claim landing on your desk, to the final judgment from the Employment Judge. They will also offer some practical advice on how to avoid the common pitfalls of an employment tribunal claim and will discuss the more strategic decisions employers often face such as settlement discussions, how to manage the expectation of the business and how to limit reputational risk.

We are also delighted to have Andrew Stafford QC joining us. In addition to making regular appearances in the employment tribunals as a barrister, Andrew is a former part-time Employment Judge. As such, he will offer us a rare insight into how claims are perceived by tribunal panels.

As always, the speakers are more than happy to cover any particular topics or issues you may have concerning tribunal claims. Please email any questions to Nicola Thomson and she will pass them on to the speakers.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us.
