Taking the tribulation out of tribunals…

Now more than ever, scrutiny is being applied to practice, procedure and the standards of employment tribunal litigation from clients, judges and professional colleagues. Against that backdrop, you need to be aware of the latest tips and procedural approaches to set your client’s employment tribunal claim or defence for success. Join our session, covering:

  • Exemplar/Draft ET1 and ET3 documents will be provided for review. In the session we will ‘deep-dive’ into those responses (developed from real-life experience) to point out common pitfalls, areas for improvement and areas where you can add real value in your case;
  • Discussion and examples on the potential interlocutory applications you could make, why you may want to do so and the key considerations to apply each time an application is being considered or is made against you; and
  • Best practice tips and tricks on ensuring proportionality and relevance in drafting pleadings / statements of case and avoiding ‘boiling the ocean’ on issues and points of argument.

The session will be chaired by Katya Hosking from Devereux Chambers with speakers Julie Duane and Paul Wilson from St Philips Chambers.
