We all love the drama of good court case or employment tribunal — but what if it was your company in the dock?

This March, as Dublin 18.part of Local Enterprise Week, Junior Chamber Ireland (Dublin Southside) in association with Amorys Solicitors, will be hosting a mock Workplace Relations Commission tribunal in the Beacon Hotel, Sandyford, Dublin 18.

We step into the glamourous world of fashion when a high-flying PR executive is dismissed after a fashion show falls flat amid suspicions that she is planning to start her own company with a prized client. But did the company follow proper procedures, and was the employee a victim of bullying, harassment and unrealistic expectations?

The mock tribunal presents a great opportunity to experience the theatre of the Workplace Relations Commission, understand how the process works and build your confidence to prepare for any future hearings without risk to your business.

The session promises to be dramatic and entertaining, and will also offer practical information and experience that is relevant to all business owners, managers and employees having or seeking to secure a managerial role.

The tribunal will be presided over by Davnet O’Driscoll, a WRC Adjudicator designate and solicitor with Amorys Solicitors. Stephen Fitzpatrick BL, barrister, and Deirdre Farrell, solicitor also with Amorys will be representing the parties. This event will provide attendees with:

  • An opportunity to help demystify Workplace Relations Commission proceedings relating to a claim for unfair dismissal.
  • Guidance on how to implement workplace policies in your business.
  • A chance to learn how to prepare for, present and defend an unfair dismissal claim.
  • A forum to question and discuss employment law issues with experienced employment law lawyers

The seminar is free to attend, however, it is expected to be very popular and places are limited so please register your attendance on Eventbrite. More info on Local Enterprise Week events in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown can be found here.
