Early Conciliation is the first part in the tribunal process. It’s one of, if not the most crucial time within a claim.
Don’t take Early Conciliation for granted, it may save you effort, time and more importantly money. The process can last up to 6 weeks and allows both parties to agree outcomes and part ways without going to tribunal. In this stage it’s possible to avoid a tribunal entirely with the right mediation. Minimise the negative impact of a lengthy tribunal claim which may take months to resolve and is time-consuming for all parties.
Early Conciliation involves the claimant getting in touch with ACAS to register their interest in pursuing the claim. As part of ACAS’ first advice, they will offer Early Conciliation. This is offered as separate from the tribunal whereby ACAS acts as a mediator between the employee and employer to try and find a middle ground for an informal settlement.
Failing to reach an early settlement agreement in Early Conciliation could result in the case progressing to an Employment Tribunal.

That’s why we’ll always offer you a service that won't be matched, with the most competitive prices in the marketplace.
When you're with Wirehouse, you can expect to receive prompt, actionable advice, that is in keeping with your business objectives where possible.
