- Blacklisting High Court latest figures:
Over 180 blacklisted workers settled their claims after renewed offers from the firms in the past 2-3 weeks. The estimated cost to the firms for these cases alone is in the region of £15-20million plus legal costs (which could be considerably more).
There are 154 live claims remaining (across all legal teams) plus 82 recently issued new claims. The next hearing is a Pre-Trial Review on 21st April. The full trial starts on 9th May and is scheduled to run until 31st July.
