There is no legal requirement to appeal a dismissal and to be honest if you do not want your job back there is no pint in making an appeal. By appealing all you will be asking is to get your job back as that is the only potential outcome of the procedure. So if you wanted to challenge the dismissal itself rather than try to get your job back, you should consider initiating the tribunal process.
Before a person can make a claim in the employment tribunal, they would be required to participate in mandatory early conciliation through ACAS.
The purpose of this process is to allow ACAS to mediate between the claimant and respondent to agree on an out of court settlement in order to avoid the need for legal action in tribunal. The respondent does not have to engage in these discussions, or if they do and the talks are unsuccessful, the claimant will be issued with a certificate allowing them to make a claim.
However, if a settlement is reached, the claimant would agree not to proceed with the claim in return for the agreed financial settlement. Other terms can also be agreed as part of the settlement, such as an agreed reference.
To initiate the conciliation procedure ACAS can be contacted online by filling in the following form (https://ec.acas.org.uk/Submission/SingleClaimantPage), or by phone on 0300(###) ###-####
