In light of the Supreme Court’s ruling that employment tribunal fees are unlawful, businesses could well start to see a sharp increase in the number of tribunal claims brought against them, even though many might have little merit.
Your ability to defend claims, and to prevent problems arising in the first place, often depends on the quality of meetings held and evidence which is kept. Proof of what happened cannot be created in hindsight, but needs to be created as you go along to provide effective ammunition.
We are delighted to invite you to our first breakfast briefing after the Summer break at which we will discuss how you might position your business so as to minimise the risk of employment tribunal claims being brought but, also, how to ensure that your organisation is ready and in good shape to fight or settle them if claims do materialise. Equally a lot of disputes that end up at tribunal can be nipped in the bud altogether if caught early enough and dealt with efficiently and clearly.
We are very pleased to welcome Rebecca Thomas, an experienced employment barrister at 42 Bedford Row, who will join us at the breakfast briefing. Rebecca will be able to provide a valuable insight into why businesses win and lose employment cases; how Judges view witness evidence in particular; and what sort of evidence it is helpful to have available to back up what witnesses say.
We look forward to welcoming you and discussing your views and experiences in relation to this topic.
