Virtual event for the public sector and employers: Employment claims in a virtual world

We are running this event as part of our National Procurement Service for Wales webinar programme, but this webinar is relevant to all employers.

Employment tribunals are facing one of the biggest backlogs of claims for 10 years. A surge in unemployment caused by Covid-19, whilst courts and Tribunals were also forced to shut their doors for months to safeguard against the spread of the virus, has resulted in the rise of the virtual Tribunal hearing. Significant investments in the Cloud Video Platform system and recent amendments to the Employment Tribunals Rules means remote hearings are likely to stay for the foreseeable future.

In this webinar, we will look at the impact of Covid-19 on Employment Tribunals and help guide you through the process of managing a remote hearing. We are delighted that Douglas Leach, a barrister from Guildhall Chambers, Bristol and a regular Employment Tribunal advocate, will be joining us for this webinar.

By listening to this webinar you will understand:

  • The impact of Covid-19 on Employment Tribunals
  • The part remote hearings now play in employment claims
  • Which hearings can be heard remotely
  • How remote and hybrid hearings are conducted
  • The alternatives available including workplace and judicial mediation

We’ll provide:

  • Tips for preparing for a remote hearing
  • An outline of the challenges and how to overcome these
  • Answers to your questions
