Cooper Lomaz Recruitment are proud to be the sponsor for this year’s Birketts Mock Employment Tribunal taking place at Chelmsford City Racecourse on Thursday 7th June and Tattersalls in Newmarket on Tuesday 19th June.
This year sees Birketts LLP host their first Mock Tribunal with over 150 HR professionals from across the region due to attend both events.
The Birketts employment team will be running a full day hearing of a real-life employment claim, providing an insight into the workings of an employment tribunal.

This year the event will showcase a claimant’s case on the basis of being subjected to discrimination and harassment on the grounds of her pregnancy.

Attendees will observe expert cross examination up close and gain an understanding of the importance of witness evidence, allowing the tribunal to hear both claimant’s and respondent’s evidence before judgement on the case.
All evidence will be handed down to expert barristers Michael Duggan QC and Tim Sheppard and chaired by Employment Judge, Kevin Palmer who will conclude the event.

Emma O’Brien, HR and Operations Manager at Cooper Lomaz Recruitment said ‘As a HR Professional I find this type of event extremely beneficial. We all hope that tribunal experience is something we will not need to use on a regular basis, therefore this type of event gives a real insight into an area not often discussed’.

On partnering with Birketts and this event Simon Brown, Managing Director at Cooper Lomaz Recruitment said ‘At Cooper Lomaz we have a long standing partnership with Birketts. Each year we sponsor at least one of their events. I am proud that we will continue that relationship this year and believe the insight gained from Mock Tribunals is an innovative way of looking at an area of Employment Law not often discussed’,

Cooper Lomaz will be attending both events on the day and available should any organisations wish to speak to us.
