What is ACAS Early Conciliation?

ACAS Early Conciliation is the system of mandatory pre-claim conciliation that applies to most employment disputes (including redundancy, unfair dismissal and whistleblowing), under which one of the parties must contact the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) before a claim can be issued in the Employment Tribunal. This is unless one of the limited exceptions applies. This must be done within the relevant time frame (generally 3 months less one day from the date of the act complained of) or the claims may be out of time and not capable of being pursued.
