Blackadders Employment Team of the Year held free Mock Tribunals across Scotland.
The Blackadders Employment Team created a fake case about Kasia, an employee of Millars’ Mince Company who had lodged a claim on the basis of discrimination after seeing an ill-judged Facebook post shared by colleague Donna. Donna’s post said “Vegans are new-age travellers. Share if you want this fad to be over” and included a picture of a woman hugging a tree. As a Vegan, Kasia is outraged and has lodged a claim for discrimination against Millars’ Mince Company.
During the Mock Tribunal the Employment Team covered questions about the case such as:
Does being a vegan amount to a protected characteristic?
Can Millars’ Mince be held liable for Donna’s post?
Will Kasia’s claim be successful at tribunal?
Duncan Milne represented Kasia.
Jack Boyle represented Millars’ Mince Company.
EJ Meiklejohn/Reynolds/Allison was presiding.
