Blacklisting case exposes dangerous loophole

24 January 2014
Blacklisting
A UK High Court ruled on January 17 that a construction union activist blacklisted for drawing attention to asbestos and other hazards on construction sites had "suffered an injustice" but was not protected by employment and human rights law because he did not have an employment contract with the end user.

The court decision, which upheld earlier Employment Tribunal decisions, effectively strips agency workers of their fundamental rights solely on account of their triangular employment relationship.
