LEGISLATIVE CHANGES ENACTED BETWEEN 1989
17. This basic structure remained substantially unchanged
between 1990 and 1998. However, several changes of detail were
introduced. In particular, the 1989 Act was amended in 1991, to
introduce a revised approach to the confidentiality of monitoring
information. The revised approach generally preserved the confidentiality
of monitoring information, but permitted the disclosure of otherwise
confidential information to several statutory bodies (including
the FEC) and the Fair Employment Tribunal.
The legislation was also amended in 1994 to remove the limit on
compensation which might be awarded by the Fair Employment Tribunal.
