Topic Announced for Mock Employment Tribunal

Our leading Employment law team is pleased to announce the topic for this autumn's Mock Employment Tribunal event...

'Was the Employee Dismissed Fairly by the Council or Was Their Dismissal Due to “Whistleblowing” Against it?'

In the increasingly regulatory working environment, when managing HR and employment issues employers are more often becoming embroiled in cross-allegations of “whistleblowing”, further complicating the process and potentially exposing them to considerable expense in management time, reputational risk and financial outlay.

We will consider a full unfair dismissal case (concerning allegations of misconduct with cross-allegations relating to detrimental treatment due to whistleblowing).

Following evidence from both sides, cross-examination of witness and submissions, the employment judge will decide whether the employee was fairly dismissed for misconduct or whether his allegations of whistleblowing mean that his dismissal was automatically unfair.

Team head and partner Sue, playing the role of the judge, will be joined by fellow partner Tim Clark, associate solicitor Laura Binnie and solicitor Andrea Corr.

100% of attendees said that they would recommend our 2018 event to others, describing it as “a great event”, “very informative”, “realistic”, “very relatable” and “excellent all round”.
