thank you for your advise...I have re worded my Cot3 as follows can you confirm this meets standard which would be acceptable to submit? I have worded it in simple understandable english and have removed all quotes relating to any Acts as the original sent from ACAS was overloaded with "including ,but not limited to any claims arising under acts (of which they included 11) ect.. which I did not understand and the whole paragraph these acts were included in came to no conclusion, which in its self made no sense to the paragraph.
