Employment Appeal Tribunal (Amendment) Rules 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 1 October 2005

The Rules amend the Employment Appeal Tribunal Rules 1993 to implement the Employment Relations Act 2004, section 36, which, by amending the Employment Tribunals Act 1996, section 10(6), provides that certain powers available to employment tribunals under employment tribunal procedure regulations for use in national security proceedings can be used in particular proceedings, whether or not they are Crown employment proceedings, if the tribunal considers it expedient in the interests of national security. The Rules replace Form 1 (Notice of Appeal from Employment Tribunal) with a new version and make amendments to Form 3 (Respondent's Answer). The Rules can be viewed on the OPSI website.
