Report on the quality of the data used to produce the early conciliation and employment tribunal statistical series.
When an employee wants to make a claim against their employer at an employment tribunal, in most cases they must notify Acas first. Acas offers early conciliation to try to reach an agreement between the employee and employer and avoid the employee making a claim to an employment tribunal.
In some circumstances, the employer may approach Acas to help resolve a potential dispute. This can also be handled using early conciliation.
This data shows the number of early conciliation notifications Acas receives and the number of cases that make a claim to an employment tribunal.
