What is ACAS early conciliation?

What does early conciliation involve?

Both you and your employee need to inform ACAS what you want to achieve from the process. For instance, your employee might want you to change your behaviour towards them, or they might want a financial settlement in return for not taking it to a tribunal.

If you’re able to reach a mutually satisfactory outcome, this will be formalised in a COT3 legal agreement.

However, if, at the end of the process, you’re unable to reach an agreeable outcome with your employee, they may decide to pursue an Employment Tribunal claim.

For obvious reasons, it is in the interest of all parties not to go through a lengthy and costly tribunal.
