Legal Aid Available for ETs in Scotland

According to an article in The Scotsman (20.11.00), the Scottish executive has made legal aid available for bringing claims in employment tribunals. This is regarded as a 'pre-emptive strike' in view of the current claims being brought in Scotland under Article 6 of the ECHR for failing to provide legal aid (see bulletin 23/5/00)

It is expected that legal aid will be available for ETs in Scotland (not England or Wales) from 15th January 2001.
