ACAS Early Conciliation

 6th May 2014

From today, claimant employees will have to submit details of their dispute to ACAS before they can issue a claim in the Employment Tribunal.  They will be offered early conciliation for a month, which can be extended by two weeks, and the time limit for presenting a claim will be extended. 

If conciliation is refused by either party or does not succeed, the employee will be able to present his or her claim. 

There is no obligation on either party to conciliate, but it is hoped that ACAS will have a high success rate and that this free service will mean a number of potential employment claims are settled before tribunal proceedings are started.
