A union campaign for fair access to legal representation for injured workers has won backing from the British Safety Council (BSC).

The Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers’ campaign sought to reverse an increase in the threshold limit for employer liability cases, to prevent workers being dissuaded from taking their employer to court if they are injured at work.

“No-one should be injured or made ill at work,”​ said David Parr, policy and technical services director at the BSC. “But if they are, workers should have the support to hold the employer to account, so that incidents do not reoccur.”

The campaign was in response to new Government legislation that would raise the limit on small claims from £1,000 to £2,000.
