HR managers who come to Employment Tribunal hearings frequently say they intend to go back to the business and get the staff to do things differently in future. This is because they have the opportunity to share in the Advocate’s years of experience of Employment Tribunal hearings. With that experience comes the knowledge that technical books and internet information cannot convey the nuances and practicalities of the Employment Tribunal Judges and Panel members’ decisions.The Employment Tribunals’ members’ views as to when a disciplinary procedure is unfair or whether the actions or inactions of line managers constitutes discrimination, for example, are not as black and white as the regulations to which those views are applied.
The coaching Employers’ Champion offers brings the experience of the Advocate to your line managers and HR professionals; they come to understand that what each line manager and senior management do in the business every day will affect the outcome of every Tribunal hearing or settlement negotiation and their actions really can make a difference.
Participants discover that it equips them with employment law knowledge and tools to avoid and reduce Employment Tribunal claims as well as guiding them through how to carry out their normal line management activities as well as in specialist situations such as potential disability and reasonable adjustment circumstances, disciplinary and grievance processes, redundancy procedures and TUPE processes.
