How ACAS Can Help Employees

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) provide information and advice to both employees and employers. This information is free of charge. It encompasses relations within the workplace as well as employment law. ACAS can be helpful to an employee in the following ways:

1. Advice And Guidance

ACAS offers advice to employees from their library for easy access to information. Booklets and handbooks can be downloaded by employees for them to peruse through. This information covers employment matters that an employee needs to be aware of.

Matters such as employee rights are dived into. Tackling discrimination and redundancy within the workplace is also highlighted.

This information can be of great help to employees. It enables them to identify scenarios in which their rights are being violated by their employers.

2. Training

ACAS trains employees on all employment aspects. These training courses cover fields such as absence management, disciplinary matters, employment contracts and people management.

Specialized training such as work-life balance is also conducted. These training programs can help employees in the delivery of their jobs.

They can be able to learn how to balance their work and become more productive. These training programs are provided to all types and sizes of businesses.

3. Dispute Resolution

The workplace always has disputes and grievances. Some of these disputes are resolved within the workplace. For those disputes that cannot be amicably resolved, ACAS can be called in.

ACAS helps employees who have disputes within the workplace. They find amicable solutions for both aggrieved parties. This process may hereby not end up within the Employment Tribunal. They save time, money and the stress that employees may endure within the tribunal.

4. Helpline

ACAS has a helpline that provides answers to queries that employees have. This database contains frequently asked queries in regard to employment. Straightforward answers are provided to these queries.

Further assistance can also be offered to employees. ACAS advisers can talk to employees about their rights. This helps one to decide on the next course of action. Calls can be made to their helpline so that employees get the assistance that they need.

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service provides impartial information to employees. This information guides employees on what they should do. They are able to know whether their rights as employees are being violated through this information.

Employees should seek the help of ACAS during conflict resolution as well as a firm of recommended solicitors. They should first consult them before deciding to go to the Employment Tribunal.

The ACAS ensures that employees are aware of their rights through the information provided. This safeguards the interests of employees within the workplace.
