NEXT STOP IN OUR HOW TO SERIES!
McDermott Will & Emery’s Employment Group is pleased to announce the latest in our popular HOW TO series of complimentary breakfast seminars.
The HOW TO series takes a practical look at what you have been telling us are the key employment issues affecting you, highlighting the latest legal developments in each area and drawing on our wealth of experience to give you pragmatic, user-friendly guidance on HOW TO deal with these matters confidently and effectively.
In our next session, we will be looking at HOW TO... Effectively deal with Employment Tribunal claims, and we would be delighted if you joined us.
Recent developments in law and procedure have significantly changed the landscape for bringing, defending and settling Employment Tribunal claims. We will take you through what you need to know to head off Tribunal claim or to successfully defend against one, as well as to advise your business on the risk of claims arising in the first place. Topics we will cover include:
- Closing down a threatened Tribunal claim—How to use the new Early Conciliation regime to best effect and early settlement generally.
- If settlement is not achieved, tactics for using Tribunal processes to your advantage—Tips for improving your position in the run up to a hearing.
- New financial penalties—A new factor for employers to bear in mind when considering tactics.
- Running a case to hearing—Practical tips for dealing with claims cost-effectively, with the best prospects for success, including best practice for employers dealing with requests for information under the new regime.
This seminar will be a cutting-edge look at HOW TO use the latest legal developments in this area to your advantage that even the most experienced HR professional should find useful.
We are eager to hear your views! Members of the Employment Group will be on hand before and after the seminar to discuss any issues affecting your business. We hope to see you there. For more information, please e-mail rsvptomcdermott mwe.com
