New ACAS Arbitration Scheme

The DTI announced today that ACAS is introducing a new arbitration scheme, for unfair dismissal claims only.

It will provide a cheap(!) and informal alternative to tribunal hearings. One advantage is that the arbitration is confidential, ie not in the public doman like tribunal hearings.

ACAS will be producing formal guidance on the scheme in due course.
