Thursday 20th July 2023 | 5-6.00pm BST | Online via Zoom

Doughty Street Chambers' Employment, Discrimination and Equality Law Team invite you to join the second in our seminar series on Stress at Work Claims in the Employment Tribunal and Civil Courts, members of our Stress at Work team will be presenting a webinar on ‘Concurrent Claims and Issues arising’ on Thursday 20th July 2023 at 5pm BST.

The webinar will examine substantive questions on res judicata and abuse of process, including examining estoppel arguments, but will also give a strategic insight into procedural questions arising from stayed proceedings and settlement agreements. Our employment practitioners will consider these points from an anticipatory standpoint, asking how employment claims can be crafted in order to avoid res judicata issues arising in future civil claims. Our personal injury barristers will then consider these issues from a different angle, asking how arguments in the civil courts can be developed so to avoid aspects of their claims being struck out. The webinar will focus on the substantive and procedural issues from employment and personal injury standpoints, before applying these ideas to different factual scenarios.
