What is ACAS
ACAS is an individual and impartial party, which does not side with any one individual. Its aim to ensure smooth business and business relations throughout the UK. This
can be done in a number of ways, but mainly through mediation and arbitration. Mediation is a term used for the process before an incident may be taken to court. In this case, ACAS will mediate a conversation between two parties, and try to resolve the issue outside of the courts. Arbitration is another way to resolve disputes outside of the courts. In this instance, ACAS are the independent party which has a final say on the conversation between two parties, settling the dispute. If a party is unhappy with the result given by ACAS, they can take matters to the court.
Many cases taken on by ACAS settle out of court.
