Hi, thanks for getting back to me. You are correct that you need to go through ACAS’ early conciliation service first before you are able to make a claim in the employment tribunal. However, if conciliation is not possible with the employer and the process comes to an end, whereby you are issued with a reference number by ACAS, you are then free to make a claim in the employment tribunal.
You do not actually need a solicitor to submit your claim – this is not a formal requirement. Many claimants make the claims themselves without any legal assistance. However, if you wish to use the services of a solicitor you are of course free to do so. There are dozens of employment solicitors you could choose from and whilst we cannot recommend a specific one as you need to choose one yourself, depending on what suits you best, ***** ***** direct you to the Law Society’s search function where you can choose your local area and the specific field of a solicitor you are after (in this case Employment Law). It would then be a matter of selecting a firm from the list and enquiring as to whether they can help you with your specific situation. You should also consider the costs involved and eventually make a decision as to which firm is most suitable for your needs.
