Acas (which stands for Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) provides business with information, advice, training, conciliation and other services for employers and employees to help prevent or resolve workplace problems.

They provide free and impartial information and advice to employers and employees on all aspects of workplace relations and employment law. Acas supports good relationships between employers and employees which underpin business success. But when things go wrong they can also help by providing conciliation to resolve workplace problems.
