Employers will no longer be able to get away with mistreating any employees who take part in union-organised workplace disputes following an important legal decision
Employers will no longer be able to mistreat staff who take part in union-organised workplace disputes, following an important legal decision.
An employment appeal tribunal heard a case involving a care worker who had been disciplined, suspended and prevented from going into work by her employer, after she took part in a long-running dispute over plans to cut payment for sleep-in shifts.
The tribunal found that UK law was not compliant with international human rights law, and has acted to ensure that striking workers are now protected.
