Employment analysis: Where parties before an employment tribunal wish to obtain disclosure of Acas documentation that (a) relates to a worker, employer or trade union and (b) is held by Acas in connection with the provision of Acas’s services or its officers, it will have to take out a free-standing application to the High Court to obtain the initial Order authorising disclosure, and then come back to the employment tribunal to get a direction for the relevant disclosure actually to be made, according to the High Court.
