Employment: Northern Ireland

Volume 692: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is unlawful for an employer in Northern Ireland, a member or friend of whose family has been a victim of terrorism, to refuse to employ the convicted terrorist responsible when that terrorist is, on merit, the best person for the post. [HL4083]

As this Question is about the lawfulness of employers' decisions and employment law, which is now a devolved responsibility, it is for the devolved institutions to consider.
