A history and analysis of the blacklisting scandal in the UK.
In 2013, the IER responded to the launch of an inquiry into the blacklisting scandal with an easy guide to the history of the conspiracy, with expert analysis of the law as it stands.
Since the original guide was published, further revelations of wrongdoing have emerged, including the shocking role of the British Secret Services in the surveillance and blacklisting of workers who had committed no criminal act.
The Institute of Employment Rights continues to monitor the situation facing blacklisted workers and has repeatedly made recommendations as to how the law should be reformed to protect workers from further harm.
The issue of blacklisting has been brought up in parliament numerous times, but the Coalition has stated that it feels there is no need to change legislation as there is no evidence that the practice is ongoing.
