My Department currently has one case in relation to the Employment Equality Acts pending in the Equality Tribunal. My Department has no cases currently before the Labour Court, CPSA or the EAT. In respect of one additional case, my Department has been named as co-respondent along with three other Government Departments. As the subject matter is not of relevance to my Department, my officials will seek the removal of this Department as a respondent when the case comes to hearing.
