ACAS Code

Employment Law London provides services to both employees and employers. Employees and employers are protected by and subject to employment legislation.

The ACAS Code of Practice became effective from 6 April 2009. Employment Tribunals must take into account the parties compliance with the Code and if they have unreasonably failed to follow one of the Code’s provisions, the Tribunal:

  • can take into account the party’s failure in deciding the merits of the case; and
  • may increase or decrease compensation by up to 25% in the case of claimants

 

One main difference of the Code to the previous statutory Dispute Resolution Regulations is that non-compliance with the statutory minimum disciplinary and grievance procedures does not automatically result in unfair dismissal.
