Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) (Amendment) Regulations 2010

2010 No. 131

These Regulations come into force on 6th April 2010 and amend the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004 (S.I. 2004/1861) (as amended by S.I. 2004/2351, 2005/435, 2005/1865, 2008/2683 and 2008/3240).

These Regulations make provision to enable the Tribunal Service to forward a claim to a regulator listed in the new Annex to Schedule 1 in certain circumstances. The Annex reflects the list of prescribed persons listed in the Public Interest Disclosure (Prescribed Persons) Order 1999 Order (S.I. 1999/1549), as amended. The Employment Rights Act 1996 (c. 18) provides a worker with the right not to suffer a detriment, or be dismissed, as a result of making a qualifying disclosure to a prescribed person in accordance with the requirements of that Act. A full Impact Assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
