Human rights Right to a fair hearing. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, upheld the Employment Appeal Tribunal's finding that the closed material procedure and use of a special advocate was not incompatible with the employee's right, under art 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, to a fair hearing of his claim for discrimination, and was not contrary to EU law. The court also upheld the EAT's finding that the employee had to be provided with the allegations being made against him in sufficient detail to enable him to give instructions to his legal representatives so that those allegations could be effectively challenged.
