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 legislation.gov.im.
