Acas Arbitration Scheme

The Acas arbitration scheme is for unfair dismissal and flexible working claims, which would otherwise go to a full tribunal hearing. It is a private, more informal and speedy procedure for resolving these disputes. Parties opt into it voluntarily, by agreement. Guidance on the scheme is available from Acas.
