CIRCUIT COURT RULES (EMPLOYMENT EQUALITY) 2012
1. (1) These Rules, which shall come into operation on the 15th day of August 2012, may be cited as the Circuit Court Rules (Employment Equality) 2012.
(2) These Rules shall be construed together with the Circuit Court Rules.
(3) The Circuit Court Rules as amended by these Rules may be cited as the Circuit Court Rules 2001 to 2012.
2. The Circuit Court Rules are amended:
(a) by the substitution in sub-rule (1) of rule 6 of Order 57 for the definition of a “certified copy” of the following definition:
“a “certified copy” of any decision, determination or other document shall mean a copy of the document concerned certified, as the case may be,
(a) by the employee concerned or with his consent, by a representative of any trade union of which he is a member,
