Mock Employment Tribunal

Our mock Employment Tribunal will give attendees a flavour of what it would be like in real life. In a role-play scenario, a team of experienced employment barristers (one of whom is a practicing Employment Tribunal judge), together with Ogletree Deakins’ London team, will recreate the workings of a Tribunal in a safe and non-critical environment where attendees can raise questions as the event unfolds. You will have an opportunity to understand the procedure of giving evidence, cross-examination, and re-examination, to discuss your perceptions of the evidence, and to predict the outcome of the case.

This series will cover the key elements of the compliance framework and the importance of understanding the mechanics of this challenging form. In the first webinar, the speakers will review what constitutes good faith compliance, and the importance of creating internal policies and procedures that ensure I-9s are prepared timely, accurately, and completely, and that I-9 records are properly maintained.

The Ins and Outs of H-2As and H-2Bs—A Potential Option for Shorthanded Temporary-Need Employers

Join this webinar as attorneys from Ogletree Deakins’ Immigration Practice Group discuss the differences between H-2A (agricultural) and H-2B (non-agricultural) work visas and which businesses qualify for each. The speakers will review the H-2B seasons and how the numerical cap process for H-2B visas works, as well as discuss strategies for obtaining temporary workers even if the H-2B cap is met. The webinar will offer timely pointers about the H-2A and H-2B programs and highlight steps to prepare for compliance-related concerns and government enforcement actions that tend to accompany these programs.
