Employment Legislation

This page contains a list of employment legislation which is currently applicable in the Isle of Man together with some other legislation which is relevant to employing people.

Acts, such as the Employment Act 2006, may be revised from time to time and amendments made by subsequent legislation will be incorporated into the text of the original Act. The Attorney General’s Chambers updates all Acts when they are amended and current Isle of Man Acts can be found on the Isle of Man Government on-line legislation website at (As that website is most likely to contain completely up to date versions of Acts the table below does not contain hyperlinks to Acts).

Most secondary legislation (e.g. Regulations, Orders) is not revised and is in the form in which it was originally made. To locate an item please click on the associated hyperlink in the table below.
