February 21, 2016

0d8825c24bceb54735730956eacc7c5cThe Cabinet has approved amendments to the Employment and Industrial Relations Act. This follows the decision by the Constitutional Court which in two sentences declared that certain aspects of the Act breached the Constitution where the Industrial Tribunals are concerned. The Constitutional Court found that the Industrial Tribunal breached the right of a fair hearing.  The Industrial Tribunal did not guarantee an independent and impartial hearing. To rectify this situation Parliament will be meeting on Wednesday 24th February 2016
