Teesside business law firm the Endeavour Partnership and Yarm School have donated proceedings from their yearly flagship employment law event. The sum totalling £500 is a great addition to year of fundraising Endeavour has committed to for their nominated charity of 2019, Community Campus.
Community Campus combats homelessness by providing affordable housing alongside emotional and practical support across the Tees Valley. The donation of both the venue charge and the ticket price has raised much-needed funds, whilst the event itself provided a valuable opportunity for employers to understand how to prepare for a tribunal hearing.
Endeavour Partnership’s much awaited mock employment tribunal experience took the audience through a live employment tribunal hearing, demonstrating the process to HR professionals, managers and company directors of the process and showing them how best to prepare for and deal with such an eventuality.
Stephen Elliott, Partner and Head of the Employment team at Endeavour Partnership said: “The prospect of attending an employment tribunal hearing is daunting for any employer. By hosting this event we were able to give employers the opportunity, in a safe space, to experience what actually happens. We gave helpful advice and suggested practical measures they can take to support their case, should they ever find themselves in a real legal dispute.
“The annual event is always well attended and this year we were pleased to support a local charity by donating the ticket revenue to Community Campus. Yarm School kindly donated the venue hire charge helping to contribution to this amazing figure.”
The event received positive comments from attendees, Dawn Campbell from EEW OSB said: “It is well worth attending this type of event as it gives people in HR a view point of both sides of a tribunal if they have not already been involved in one. I personally have gained invaluable information and guidance that will help me in my HR role.”
