Useful Resources

Clients of the Grass is Greener are generally resourceful and robust preferring to retain control over their affairs.

Here at the Grass is Greener we recognise that not every legal issue, not every dispute or concern will necessarily require a lawyer’s input. Therefore, in order to help you resolve your issue without the need to instruct us, we have compiled a list of useful resources that deal with many of the common employment issues that arise.

Of course, we cannot control the content of these external resources and we do not guarantee that the content is up-to-date, correct or accurate. However we have used our discretion in selecting only recognised bodies and resources. We hope they will be of assistance to you.


The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) is a government backed body which assists both employers and employees in understanding employment law and resolving workplace disputes.

The guidance provided by ACAS does not have a legal standing, it is not set in stone and does not dictate the result of Tribunal or Court cases. However, Judges do have regard to guidance given by ACAS in order to assess the working practices or conduct of employers or employees. It is often influential.


For your convenience we have set up links below to the most common issues that arise:

Dismissing Employees
Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures
Managing Conflict at Work
Equality and Discrimination
Settlement Agreements
Stress at Work
Transfer of Undertaking

This website is operated by the government and provides information about how the Employment Tribunal system works. As a resource it can be very helpful but it can also be somewhat dense and impenetrable.

However, it gives access to:
online claims forms,
online response forms,
forms and leaflets.

The main benefit of using this website is that it gives you access to the Employment Tribunal Rules which govern this area. These should be studied with care as compliance with them can make or break a claim.
