Bishopsgate Law, a firm of solicitors in London and Hertfordshire, helps employees with employment law problems bring employment tribunal claims and represents them at tribunals.
The Human Rights Act 1998 came into force on 2 October 2000. It means the UK Courts (and the Employment Tribunals and EAT) will have to interpret UK domestic law in accordance with the European Convention on Human Rights.
The Human Rights Act regulates how the state and its laws are to affect the lives of its citizens. It does not directly create rights that are enforceable by one person against another. But because disputes between employers and their employees will involve recourse to the law and rulings by the courts about the extent to which one or the other is regulated by the law, and the interpretation of the law, human rights issues are relevant and will continue to arise in the decisions courts have to make which effect the relationship of employers and employees.
