This consultation seeks views on a draft Order in Council that makes provision for the transfer of specified functions of the Employment Tribunals to the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Smith Commission recommended that the management and operation of all reserved tribunals(which includes administrative, judicial and legislative powers) be devolved to the Scottish Parliament

 

This consultation seeks views on a draft Order in Council that makes provision to transfer specified functions of the Employment Tribunal to the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland. The proposed transfer of functions would allow the First-tier Tribunal to

hear Scottish employment cases (as defined in the draft Order), along with a number of cases that do not fit within that category but which have a sufficient link to Scotland and should therefore be heard in a Scottish tribunal.
