DISPUTE RESOLUTION: Early conciliation scheme launches

04 April 2014  

Jo Pairman analyses the potential impact of a new scheme requiring Acas to be involved before claims can be issued in the employment tribunal

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) has provided free, voluntary pre-claim conciliation on issues such as unfair dismissal, discrimination and redundancy since 2009. In the year to 31 March 2011, such pre-claim conciliation was successful in 74% of cases, increasing to 78% the following year.
