Other than cases involving employee competition, the traditional approach of practitioners to employment litigation has been to focus on the Employment Tribunal’s jurisdiction. However, in some instances there will be mechanisms for pursuing a particular employment related matter in the Civil Courts.
Exploring such opportunities may enable claimants to reduce the impact of the well-publicised introduction of fees in the Employment Tribunal, as well as potentially providing advantages in terms of costs recovery. It is essential that employers and other potential defendants are well-prepared to meet these claims.
In the light of the recent changes to employment tribunal litigation, it is perhaps an opportune time to consider ways to expand and complement the scope of your existing practice. The seminars will focus on helping practitioners identify the types of employment claim that can be brought in the Civil Courts as an alternative to the Employment Tribunal, as well as other types of work (other than employee competition cases) that employment lawyers are ideally placed to carry out in the Civil Courts, such as non-employment discrimination claims. There will also be a detailed analysis of the strategic, tactical and practical considerations that will be likely to arise when bringing or defending such claims.
