ACAS PCC VIDEOS CLOCK INFO: Chapter 1 – Opening Address Job ID: 37394 PCC Videos ACAS_C1_OpeningAddress_640x360 TX Script 2 Time-codes Dialogue 00:00:05:13 Speaker You probably know as ACAS we settle a lot of employment disputes and probably many of you either directly or indirectly will know colleagues or friends who either run a small business, or work for a small business, or work for large businesses who have been involved in employment disputes. And sometimes them employment disputes end up a tribunal, which is both a costly experience for all the parties. Costly in terms of time, money, the stress etc. Is there a way of getting a new process free, free to everybody, employer, employee that would sort of like stop people having to go to a tribunal? Where they could feel in control of the process, where they could feel that the outcome was the right thing. Where in some ways we took away the potential for stress and cost both for the employer and the employee should they go to tribunal, and would it work. Now we tried this out pre-claim conciliation last year. And we started to introduce the service in April last year as a result of the government’s new Employment Relations Bill. There’s an opportunity here for both, all those involved in employment disputes where we can identify that they will be prepared to look at pre-claim conciliation, that they can find a solution to it. 00:01:14:18 Speaker Now we’ve got a process here today, which I’ll hand over to my colleague, Pete Monaghan to explain it in more detail, which will show you a sort of truncated version of an actual case that goes through. And you’ll be delighted to know it is interactive. The process we have in place now, and we think it will probably grow, is much quicker, it’s cheaper for the parties, all of them, and it probably provides a better solution. It’s much broader, they think they own the actual process itself. 00:01:41:10 Pete Monaghan Job ID: 37394 PCC Videos ACAS_C1_OpeningAddress_640x360 TX Script 3 I think one of the things that we’re trying to do today is to give you an opportunity to actually see what this looks like in practice. One of the most common complaints that we get now and over many years has been that of unfair dismissal. So you’re going to see a potential unfair dismissal, a complaint being dealt with through pre-claim conciliation.
