INDIVIDUALS suing their employers for sex discrimination will have to use their own money, legislators were told yesterday. Government officials said those cases were considered civil disputes between individual parties, and therefore they would not be exempted from the means test required for applying legal aid. However, cases brought against the Government could be exempted from the means test because they were considered human rights cases. Legislators demanded that cases falling under the Government's Sex Discrimination Bill be exempted from the means test. Exemption over cases that hinge on the Bill of Rights will only be possible after the proposed amendments to the Legal Aid Bill become law. Principal Assistant Secretary for Home Affairs Susie Ho Suk-yee said the Government expected only a small number of sex discrimination cases to arise. She estimated that most potential Bill of Rights cases linked to sex discrimination would receive legal aid, but she declined to suggest figures.
