Major companies accused of colluding to ‘blacklist’ troublesome workers

More than 40 major British companies face legal action for allegedly buying secret personal data about thousands of workers they wanted to vet before employing them.

The information commissioner, Richard Thomas, will today publish a list of the companies he believes may have broken data protection laws, after an investigation by his office that was sparked by fears that many workers were being unfairly “blacklisted”.

The commissioner alleges that the firms, including Balfour Beatty, Sir Robert McAlpine, Laing O’Rourke and Costain, have, for many years, covertly bought details of workers’ trade union activities and their conduct at work.

Thomas believes that workers have been unfairly denied employment because they have had no chance of challenging any inaccurate information, some of which has been stored for decades.
