THE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS COMPENSATION SCHEME IS NOW CLOSED TO APPLICANTS.
Were you involved in the UK construction industry between 1993 and 2009?
Do you think you were refused work on UK construction sites in those years?
The Consulting Association (TCA) held records of over 3,000 names of people who may have been affected. The Construction Workers Compensation Scheme (TCWCS) is now trying to reach as many people as possible so they can be compensated.
There is no cost to apply and the scheme is designed to be fast, fair, easily accessible and a genuine alternative to going to court.
The scheme is open to applicants until 30 June 2016.
The scheme has been established and is funded by companies from the construction industry that used the services of TCA in the past.
The companies now recognise that the activities of TCA were unacceptable and they regret their involvement. They are very sorry that information was held about individuals by TCA and for any hardship suffered as a result.
The companies have established the scheme to provide compensation; they are also contributing to the establishment of a code of conduct to help ensure that nothing like this can happen again within the construction industry.
Sir Colin Mackay, a respected retired High Court judge, is the independent adjudicator for the scheme. The scheme is run by an independent administration specialist, Broadspire.
