In Safe Hands
If you have an ACAS settlement that is up to six years old, you can enforce it through Equita by transferring the settlement to the High Court for enforcement.
There is no minimal settlement value to use this route – normally a judgment must be £600 or above for transfer to the High Court for enforcement, but this does not apply to ACAS settlements.
Even better news, there is no abortive fee if enforcement is unsuccessful (for example, if there are no assets to seize, the defendant cannot be traced or is bankrupt, or insolvent in the case of a company).
This means that your maximum outlay is just the transfer-up fee. And, when enforcement is successful, this fee is recovered from the defendant.
We will also collect interest on the ACAS settlement, plus all enforcement fees and costs are recovered from the defendant.
We understand the difficult balance our clients must strike between commercial delivery and social empathy. Our years of industry experience combined with our focus on people and technical modernisation means that we get results and we do the right thing for our clients and their communities.”
