Acas Scam

Following a series of reports to them, Acas (Advisory, Conciliation & Arbitration Service) has warned employers to be wary of companies who claim they are part of, or to be acting on behalf of, Acas.

They said:

“We have recently received complaints, mainly from employers, about companies contacting them who say they are part of and/or acting on behalf of Acas. They typically offer initial advice which they don’t charge for but then ask people to sign up to a long-term, often expensive contract for employment and/or health and safety advice.”

Further information and contact details can be found on the Acas website here.
