Fair Employment Tribunal

Section 6: Extension of time limit to allow conciliation

This section inserts Article 46B into the FETO 1998. This sets out how the relevant time limits for bringing a claim before the FET will be extended where necessary to provide sufficient time for early conciliation to take place and to ensure that the claimant is not disadvantaged.

Comparable provisions extending time limits in respect of industrial tribunal matters are contained within Schedule 2.
