Employment tribunals (07): Acas conciliation (old rules)

This note outlines the process of conciliating a claim through the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas), an independent, impartial organisation mandated to liaise with both parties to an employment claim with regard to possible settlement. Acas can facilitate an outcome that cannot be ordered by the employment tribunal (such as the provision of an agreed reference or apology).

NOTE: This note explains the procedure under the Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure 2004, which are no longer in force. On 29 July 2013, these were replaced by the Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure 2013. For details of practice and procedure generally under the 2013 rules, see Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure 2013: toolkit.

For details of Acas conciliation under the 2013 rules, see Practice note, Employment tribunals (01): Acas conciliation.
