Blacklisting in the UK Construction Industry

August 2009

This report from the Institute of Employment Rights commissioned by UCATT highlights the problems surrounding the practice of blacklisting within the UK and critically examines the Government's proposed Regulations to deal with the matter.

The author, Prof Keith Ewing, concludes that the Regulations fall far short of what is required to first outlaw the compiling and use of blacklists and second to compensate those who have been denied work and had their lives ruined by companies using blacklists.
