In the majority of cases, before bringing a complaint to an employment tribunal, the claimant must first contact ACAS for early conciliation.
ACAS EC is an attempt to allow the parties to resolve the dispute quickly and cost-effectively with the assistance of an independent conciliation officer.
If the parties are able to reach an agreement then ACAS will assist in settling the complaint.
If the parties are unable to reach an agreement then ACAS will issue an EC Certificate confirming the date upon which conciliation started and ended. This will be important for the calculation of any applicable time limits for the claim(s) because, time spend in ACAS EC is not counted.
Anything said during ACAS EC is without prejudice.
For bespoke advice on the application of time limits please contact us.
