DIARY DATE: Mock Employment Tribunal – 21 March 2018


The Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and the Institute of Directors Lancashire (IoD) welcomes the team from Vista to UCLan on 21 March 2018. The team from Vista who will present a Mock Employment Tribunal using a thought provoking case study to illustrate the risks and pitfalls employers and HR advisers face when contesting unfair dismissal and discrimination proceedings.

The event will involve the audience, who will be provided with a trial bundle of evidence. Pre-selected volunteers will play the role of the witnesses in the case study, and the Vista team will play the legal roles as instructed by participant teams. It will be an insightful event and attendees will have the opportunity to get involved and have their say in what the outcome should be…let’s see if the judge agrees!

Please note, the event is free to attend for students and staff at UCLan, as well as IoD members. Please contact Lauren Mullan to secure your free place Lauren.Mullan@iod.com.
