The government intends to require potential claimants to submit details of their dispute to ACAS before issuing an employment tribunal claim, at which point they will be offered pre-claim conciliation for one month. If the parties refuse or it is unsuccessful, the claimant will then be able to present their claim in the tribunal. If the parties engage in the process however, it will have the effect of stopping the clock for the purposes of the limitation period. This additional hurdle for any claimant to overcome before bringing a claim is not expected to be introduced until April 2014 at the earliest.

"Lexology is a good barometer of a firm's expertise as the articles showcase a firm's understanding of the issues involved and how up to date their knowledge is. It's a good one stop solution where one is able to view the same law/cases from different perspectives; on the whole I would rate Lexology as a good service."
