Employment lawyers are seeing an uptick in work with the Supreme Court ruling that the increased tribunal fees were unlawful.
Employers will need to prepare for this and decide if they will do their own advocacy. Employment tribunals offer a great opportunity for solicitors interested in advocacy.
Claims can involve small and singular issues like a pay deduction and complex high value claims such as TUPE and discrimination.
Solicitors often have the upper hand against counsel who are often briefed very late in the day.
This one-hour webinar covers how to prepare for and succeed at a tribunal covering:
- preparation: skeleton arguments, cross-examination and submissions
- conduct of the hearing
- managing witnesses and evidence
- how to limit surprises
- dealing with unrepresented litigants
