Practitioners Group Meetings - spring programme

We have some exciting events coming up in the next few weeks

No need to book - just come along!

 

  • date: Wednesday 24th January 2018
    (not 7th February as previously advertised)
  • time: 6:00pm
  • topic: The employment tribunal database, anonymity orders and access to justice
    In February, HM Courts and Tribunals Service launched an online database of employment tribunal decisions. This could have serious implications for parties, their witnesses and anyone mentioned during the tribunal proceedings. This talk considers whether the new database creates barriers to access to justice and what can be done to protect clients from the risks of publication of sensitive details online.

GENERAL

A portable hearing loop is available.  Please let us know if you are considering attending and wish to make use of these facilities - or if you require some other adjustment.

These meetings are free for members.  Non-members are welcome but are asked to pay £20 (or join!).

SKYPE

There will be remote access to the PGM via Skype.  Skype users will be able to attend the session by conference call by calling “discriminationlawassociation”.

If you don't have a personal Skype account, this can easily be set up for free so members can access the PGM for free via a computer.

The line will be open from just before 6:00pm.  During the Q&A we will relay questions from the conference call to the meeting.

Skype can handle up to 24 people on a conference call.  We will open the conference to the first 23 people who call.
