I am currently working with our employment law consultancy on preparing a draft response letter as a former employee had decided to take us to a tribunal regarding redundancy. Throughout the process I was guided by our employment law consultant who advised us what we could and couldn't do, overall the process was very difficult and kept being delayed by the employee's daughter who was acting as a translator, she has now decided to represent her mother in the tribunal.
This is the first time this I have been involved in this process and it is a bit daunting when you're in a stand alone HR role. Does anyone have any tips or 'must ask' questions. Our solicitor is very good and will cover all the bases, but I want to be able to use this as a L&D opportunity as well.
