The case for job-sharing elected representatives

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In the run-up to the first election for the Scottish Parliament held in 1999 Lorraine Mann was accepted as an official candidate for the Highlands and Islands Alliance (HIA)—job-sharing with Eddie Stiven. The returning officer indicated that a job- share would not be allowed and HIA failed to win the seat. Mann challenged the returning officer's decision under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. This paper examines the political, legal and practical implications of allowing elected representatives generally, and members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs) more specifically, to job-share.
