What You Need to Know

ACAS, the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service, is an independent public body that provides expert guidance and support to both employers and employees in resolving workplace disputes.

How ACAS Services Can Assist Your Business

Here’s how ACAS can assist your business:

Conciliation Services

ACAS offers conciliation services to help parties involved in a dispute find common ground and reach a mutually agreeable resolution. 

Their trained conciliators facilitate communication between the parties, helping to clarify issues and explore potential solutions. Conciliation is often a valuable first step in addressing disputes and avoiding costly legal proceedings.

Guidance and Expert Advice

Their guidance covers a wide range of topics, including employment contracts, grievances, disciplinary procedures and discrimination. 

Businesses can benefit from ACAS’s comprehensive advice to ensure compliance with employment laws and best practices.

Code of Practice

ACAS has developed a Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures, which sets out principles for handling workplace disputes fairly and effectively. 

Following this code can be crucial in demonstrating your commitment to fair employment practices and can be used as evidence in legal proceedings.

How Mediation Services Can Assist Your Business

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that involves a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitating discussions between parties in conflict. 

Businesses can gain several advantages from choosing mediation to address workplace disputes:

Faster Resolution

Mediation typically leads to faster resolutions than lengthy legal proceedings. Quick resolutions can help businesses maintain productivity and minimise disruption caused by ongoing conflicts.


Mediation is often more cost-effective than litigation. Avoiding legal fees, court costs, and potential compensation pay-outs can result in significant savings for your business.

Preserving Relationships

Mediation focuses on finding mutually agreeable solutions, which can help preserve working relationships between employees and employers. This can be essential for maintaining a positive workplace culture.

Control Over Outcomes

In mediation, parties have more control over the outcome compared to court decisions. This allows for more creative and tailored solutions that address the unique needs of all parties involved.
