Acas Early Conciliation: First Year Statistics

Acas has published statistics showing the impact of the first year of Early Conciliation.  Key statistics include:-
  • it dealt with over 83,000 EC cases between April 2014 and March 2015; and,
  • three out of four employees and employers agreed to try EC in its first year of operation.

Of the Early Conciliation notifications received between April 2014 and December 2014:-
  • 63% did not proceed to a tribunal claim;
  • a further 15% resulted in a formal COT3 settlement; and,
  • 22% progressed to a tribunal claim
  • of the 22% in which a claim was issued, more than half (51%) subsequently settled by way of Acas COT3.

The full report should be available here very shortly.
