Online PR News – 22-April-2010 – – On the 22nd April 2010, solicitors Mace and Jones will be hosting a unique Interactive Mock Tribunal in the Daresbury Park Hotel, Warrington. Members of the company’s HR and employment teams from their Manchester and Liverpool offices will be running through the proceedings of a full tribunal hearing in both an entertaining and informative way.

The aim of this event is to answer common questions that people may have regarding the structure and procedure of tribunals. This mock tribunal will be highly recommended for anyone who has wondered what key points have to be looked out for in a tribunal, or for employers who are about to introduce a change in terms and conditions for their staff.

Delegates will not only have these questions answered, but there will also be the opportunity to discuss issues and parts of the proceedings with each side, after the mock tribunal is completed.

The case study Mace and Jones have chosen focuses on unfair treatment in the workplace, and in particular looks at the complications that arise when companies try to move staff to a different location. It also looks at how employees may attempt to force a company to hand over redundancy money. At the end of the hearings, Delegates can vote on the final outcome of the tribunal, before the chairman makes his decision.

The day will begin with registration and coffee at 9:30 am, followed by the Chairman’s welcome and introduction at 10:00 am. The tribunal will commence shortly afterward with the claimant’s witness giving evidence. After a short interval, the respondent’s first and second witnesses will give evidence at 11:50 am and there will be a break for lunch at 1:00 pm.

Throughout the afternoon, delegates will be able to discuss the most significant points with the witnesses – this is then followed by the legal submissions from each side. Delegates will vote on the favoured outcome and the Chairman will then give the final decision. The event will formally finish at 4:00 pm, when there will be an opportunity to meet the cast over drinks.

Unfortunately, the event is now fully booked, but Mace and Jones have organised a reserve list for those who wish to hold out for a cancellation. Tickets for the mock tribunal are priced at £105 + VAT (£123.38), though further reductions are given to companies who send more than one delegate, with the second charged £75 + VAT.
