Getting the most out of the meetings

The way you run the meeting could have important implications if the matter subsequently goes to an employment tribunal. Start the meeting by introducing all the people present and ensuring that everyone knows the background to and the purpose of the meeting. Remember that you are aiming to resolve the dispute and keep an open mind, listening carefully to what is said. If you can, have a fellow manager at the meeting who can take notes and discuss the meeting with you afterwards. Finish the meeting by summarising what has happened and telling everyone when you will give your decision. Leave yourself some time after the meeting to consider what has been said and follow up any new points that came out of the meeting. If a particularly significant new fact emerges it may be best to adjourn the meeting while you look into it.
