Acas publishes latest quarterly update on early conciliation statistics

Acas has published statistics on its early conciliation service covering the period April to December 2017. It has been reported that the number of notifications received by Acas between April 2017 and the end of July 2017 were consistent with those received throughout the course of 2016-2017 (with Acas receiving approximately 1,700 notifications per week).

However, since the Unison decision, which declared employment tribunal and employment appeals tribunal fees unlawful, the number of notifications has increased to 2,200.

The statistics show that since the end of August, ET1 claim form receipts and early conciliation notifications have increased by 57% and 25% respectively when compared to the same period in 2016.
