Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) (Amendment) Regulations 2008 come into force

Implementation date: 1 December 2008

The Regulations make changes to the eligibility requirements for judicial appointments to employment tribunals. They are intended to widen the range of lawyers with relevant experience who may apply to hold these offices by lowering the number of years' qualification required from seven to five years. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
