No more blacklisting
Following consultation in 2009, The Employment Relations Act 1999 (Blacklists) Regulations 2010 will soon be brought into force. This means that the compilation, distribution and use of lists by employers and employment agencies in order to facilitate discrimination against trade union members and activists will be prohibited. The Final Impact Assessment of January 2010 confirmed that the government plan to implement these regulations "at the earliest opportunity".
