Print publication


By the time this newsletter goes to press, ACAS early conciliation (EC) will be approaching its first anniversary. ACAS have recently published statistics providing the status of all EC cases notified during 2014 as at the end of January 2015. So, what do these statistics tell us about what happens to EC notifications? The good news for employers is that the majority of them (60.5%) do not progress to a Tribunal claim.

These are encouraging statistics and a reminder of the importance that managers are aware that any contact from ACAS regarding EC should be passed directly to HR.
