Mock case will put em­ploy­ers in the know

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

DI­REC­TORS, man­agers and HR pro­fes­sion­als have been in­vited to see first-hand the work­ings of an em­ploy­ment tri­bunal dur­ing a mock case, to help them bet­ter un­der­stand the process ahead of any real life sce­nar­ios in their work­place.

Scottish law firm Thorn­tons is host­ing a free mock hear­ing event for the case of “Jon Snow v Wes­teros Garage” at Dundee Univer­sity on Thurs­day Novem­ber 23 from 5.15pm.

Thorn­tons’ team of em­ploy­ment law spe­cial­ists will demon­strate strate­gies to min­imise the risk to em­ploy­ers of fac­ing a claim in the first place.

In the mock sce­nario, the char­ac­ter of Jon Snow is made re­dun­dant af­ter eight years’ ser­vice and raises a case for un­fair dis­missal.

All at­ten­dees will have the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate with the tri­bunal judge to help de­ter­mine the ul­ti­mate out­come.

Noele McClel­land, em­ploy­ment law spe­cial­ist and part­ner at Thorn­tons, said: “Fac­ing an em­ploy­ment tri­bunal hear­ing can be a daunt­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for many busi­nesses — small or large.

“We hope that through the in­for­mal mock tri­bunal, em­ploy­ers will ben­e­fit from hav­ing a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the whole process.”
