Mock Tribunal – Dismissal of a New Mum

Pregnancy and Maternity is a Protected Characteristic under the Equality Act 2010. This makes it unlawful to discriminate or treat an employee unfavourably because of their pregnancy, or because they have given birth recently, are breastfeeding or on maternity leave.   Poor performance, where a person falls short of the required standard at work, can lead to fair dismissal on the grounds of competence.  But if the poor performer has just returned from maternity leave, and has reduced her hours, dismissal can be a potential minefield.   Both sides at our Mock Tribunal believe they have done nothing wrong.

Come and see them collide, and, alongside our genuine lawyers, take the chance to cross-examine the witnesses!

As part of a simulated tribunal hearing, participants will understand:

  • What it feels like to be in a tribunal situation – you will witness this as close to the real experience as possible, including who will be in the room and what happens
  • Some aspects of the law concerning unfair dismissal
  • Discrimination issues relating to Protected Characteristics
  • How employers end up in a tribunal
  • How evidence should be presented
  • How evidence can be interpreted
  • Who wins!
