Outer Temple Chambers’ employment specialists, Andrew Allen KC and Lydia Seymour will be speaking at the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) event taking place on Thursday 18th of April 2024. Details on how to register for the virtual event can be found below.

The Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) is an apolitical organisation representing the views and interests of just over 6,000 specialist, qualified employment lawyers in the UK. Members are drawn from all branches of the legal profession and include barristers and solicitors who act for employers and employees, trade unions, the voluntary sector, industry and the judiciary. Our members have regular involvement with ELA. Employment specialist, Peter Linstead, is part of the ELA training committee.

About the event

Andrew Allen KC and Lydia Seymour will be speaking at the event, chaired by Laura Macdonald of Jackson Boyd Lawyers. The virtual event is taking place on Thursday 18th April 2024 from 4-5pm.

This webinar will cover:

  • Pre issue – forming the group action. Who should be in/out?
  • Issuing group claims in the ET. Issues arising from the fact that the system isn’t set up for large group claims.
  • Pathway to the hearing – identifying an appropriate structure (lead/beacon Claimants, preliminary issues, etc).
  • The particular problem of group claims and injury to feelings.
  • Risk of conflict between the group.
  • Remedies: Claims that look like happy group claims can come apart a bit at remedy stage because it is rare that there is a group remedy.
