Tribunal Training

HR professionals may be familiar with all that the receipt of an ET claim entails but it is often an alien process for management and witnesses – sometimes with disastrous results even in the strongest cases.

Whether you are involved in ET proceedings, wish to prepare witnesses or simply wish to raise awareness or recap the requirements and processes – a Tribunal training session can be an invaluable tool to ensure those involved in ET claims have the confidence necessary to perform to the best of their ability.
