CWU Runs Successful ‘Preparing Employment Tribunal Case’ Session

50 CWU representatives from around the UK descended on Summer Lane Birmingham and the premises of Birmingham & District Amal to take part in a session focused on ‘Preparing Employment Tribunal Cases’.

Divisional Rep Paul Kennedy, who also sits on Employment Tribunal cases as a trade union member, ran the session and covered many fundamental areas from arguing that a dismissal is potentially unfair, and essentially positioning a case as effectively as possible from the get-go.

The course also covered some helpful pointers on the early reconciliation process, working out compensation on cases (also known as remedy) and also took a look at what circumstances could possibly influence a reduction in compensation – adversely also an increase.

National Equality, Education & Development Officer, Kate Hudson was delighted with the day and added “Our thanks to Paul Kennedy who celebrated his birthday by spending it with 50 CWU reps giving an excellent insight into helping our reps gain some valuable learning points on how to prep Employment Tribunal cases. The course is proving vital to supporting our reps in this really important area as it is so important that cases are positioned as strongly as possible at the earliest stage possible.”

Since the session was first run in the South West region last year every course has been fully subscribed, with the October session already at capacity.
