Support with ACAS
The government’s Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service isn’t a court. It is what the name suggests. One of its roles is to try to prevent issues ending up in an employment tribunal that could perhaps be resolved informally and amicably - and certainly less expensively.
However, ACAS can only work with the information it is given. If you and an employee have different views of a situation. It is important that you marshal all the evidence and present your ‘case’ appropriately.
Often your employee will have assistance from a lawyer or trade union official. You can be certain they will be putting forward the best argument possible. You need to do the same.
Good preparation and arguing your case properly at ACAS is important. We can help, this is not an unfamiliar environment for us. Our specialist team will support you through this stressful process.
