Consultation on "early conciliation"

Close date: 15 February 2013

The Government consults on the "early conciliation" process, which will require prospective claimants to give details of their claim to Acas prior to lodging an employment tribunal claim. The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill introduces this requirement, but the consultation sets out how the model will work, and seeks views on a number of matters, including: draft Regulations; the draft early conciliation form that prospective claimants will use to contact Acas; and the draft early conciliation certificate.
