Free Mock Employment Tribunal Event with Blackadders LLP

Posted: 24th August 2016

After winning Employment Team of the Year at the Legal Awards 2016, Simon celebrated by flying his team to Dublin.

Following a fast round of three pints of Caffreys, three Jameson chasers and three Baby Guinesses, one of the team ended up spending the night in a shopping trolley in the middle of the Temple Bar area swiftly followed by a night in the cells.

Blackadders’ HR Manager had an “off the record” conversation with Neil the following Monday.  Tempers flared, expletives were uttered and Neil was dismissed.

Was this conversation a “without prejudice” conversation?  Was it a pre-termination negotiation?  Would this conversation be admissible in the subsequent employment tribunal? Find out on 4 and 5 October 2016.

Mr Wallace will be representing Neil.  Mr Boyle will be representing Blackadders.  Employment Judge Meiklejohn will be returning from Costa Del Sol to judge.
