Implications for equality, employment and Human Rights in Scotland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The European Union Withdrawal Bill (EUW Bill) was published on 13 July 2017. It repeals the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA) on ‘exit day’ (clause 1). The main provisions of the Bill, which has been described as ‘a complex mixture of constitutional change and legal continuity’, 80 provide for the creation of a new distinct body of law (‘retained EU law’) and broadly-framed delegated powers for Government to amend this body of law; new instructions to the courts on how to interpret retained EU law; and amendments to the legislation that underpin devolution. This note provides a summary of the main implications of the Bill for Scotland with particular focus on employment and equality laws, and human rights protections.
