Whether you act on behalf of a claimant or the respondent in respect of a discrimination matter, this 30-minute session will equip you with the knowledge required to assess the amount of the compensation that an employer may need to pay a claimant employee in the event that they are successful with their claim.
During this session barrister Alastair Hodge of 5 Essex Court will discuss the types of discrimination cases which the employment tribunal deal with, which Alastair broadly divides into two categories; ‘pure’ discrimination claims were the only compensation awarded is in respect of hurt feelings experienced by the claimant and the more common discrimination claims which have a dismissal element.
Finally, Alastair will offer guidance on preparing a schedule of loss and a counter schedule of loss, making this course invaluable for practitioners who would like to improve their ability in this important area of employment law.
