TheScottish Executive is to grant legal aid for employees to hire solicitors torepresent them in employment tribunal cases. Theprovisions are expected to come into force on 15 January in Scotland, but willnot apply in England or Wales. It isexpected that the move will lead to a considerable increase in the numbers ofcases being brought by employees over issues such as wrongful dismissal, sexdiscrimination and race discrimination.The CBI inScotland called the decision “a chancer’s charter”. CBIScotland’s Allan Hogarth said, “It will only encourage more spurious tribunalcases. If this only applies in Scotland it will put us at a huge disadvantagecompared to businesses down south. This is another reason why many companiesmay decide not to come to Scotland.”Howeverthe move has been seen by lawyers as a pre-emptive strike against potentialchallenges under the European Convention of Human Rights. Lawyersstate that the current tribunal system is itself in breach of Article 6 ofECHR, which entitles everyone to a fair hearing and representation at thathearing.l Seriousdisruption to council services across Scotland is set to continue after thelatest round of talks aimed at resolving the pay dispute ended withoutagreement last week.
