Acas Early Conciliation service has dealt with over 37,000 cases

20 November 2014

Figures published by Acas show that Early Conciliation dealt with 37,404 cases from 6 April until the end of September 2014.

Earlier this year, the law changed so that anyone thinking of making an Employment Tribunal claim had to contact Acas first. Acas then tries to resolve the dispute quickly without the need for legal action through its new free Early Conciliation service.

The statistics show that the service has continued its successful start and around 1,600 people a week are contacting Acas
