FSB welcomes measures aimed at resolving workplace disputes

The Federation of Small Businesses has welcomed measures aimed at resolving workplace disputes.

John Walker, National Chairman, said:

“We welcome the principal of a new role for ACAS in receiving all claims.

However, compulsory ACAS “Early Conciliation” is a concern despite its initial attraction.

We would not support this unless satisfied that the process will not require the business to be legally represented, and, it is a genuine streamlining of the existing process rather than an additional administrative layer.

– John Walker, National Chairman, The Federation of Small Businesses
