Conciliation periods and limitation in England and Wales - Ullah v Hounslow LBC [ET] 27.03.17 (Unreported)
An employment judge considered the correct interpretation of the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.207B, which provided that the period between the beginning of early conciliation and receipt of the conciliation certificate was not to be counted when calculating the expiry of limitation. Where a claimant contacted ACAS before the commencement of the limitation period, the effect of s.207B was that limitation did not begin to run until the day after receipt of the conciliation certificate.Link to Official Transcript
