If you receive notification from ACAS that an employee has started early conciliation, or a claim in the Employment Tribunal is issued against you, it is important to act promptly.

The ACAS early conciliation process is designed to encourage the parties to an employment dispute to resolve matters before a claim is issued. If the matter cannot be resolved through ACAS and Tribunal proceedings are issued, a response must be filed within 28 days and by the date shown within the Tribunal documentation.

We pride ourselves on our excellent track record of achieving the withdrawal or strike out of claims, succeeding at Tribunal hearings, or achieving very low settlements. We frequently represent employers faced with Tribunal hearings on agreed budgets and can assist with all aspects of the case, including representation at hearings.
