Balfour Beatty wins blacklisting case

9 Mar 10 Balfour Beatty has won the first blacklisting case to be tried since the Information Commissioner’s probe into the practice within construction firms last year.

Balfour Beatty has won the first blacklisting case to be tried since the Information Commissioner’s probe into the practice within construction firms last year.

The Employment Tribunal ruled that claimant and UCATT activist Mick Dooley was not entitled to compensation for his dismissal in 1993, because he had not been an employee of Balfour Beatty at the time.

New blacklisting regulations were introduced last week, but were criticised by unions for not making the practice a criminal offence and for failing to allow compensation for victims.
