Blacklisting legislation comes into force
Legislation banning employers from blacklisting workers because of union membership or activities unexpectedly came into force on 2 March.
Under the regulations - which were expected to be implemented in April - current and former trade union members may complain to an employment tribunal if they are refused employment, subjected to a detriment, or unfairly dismissed for a reason relating to a blacklist. Employment agencies are unable to refuse to provide a service because a worker appears on a blacklist.
