Acas helpline proves to be a success

Independent research has found that the Acas helpline has averted around 14,000 employment tribunals a year.

The research found that:

  • over nine out of ten employers (96%) who call the Acas helpline would recommend it to a colleague.
  • A third of employers (33%) implemented new policies after speaking to Acas. Additionally nearly half (47%) reported that they had updated or improved the policies at their workplace after speaking to Acas.
  • Around 23% of employees who were considering making a claim to an employment tribunal didn't pursue a claim following the advice they received.
  • The most common workplace concerns worrying employers and employees were discipline, dismissal and grievance (27%), redundancies or layoffs (23%) and contracts (19%).
