Blacklisting compensation scheme sets minimum £4k payment

Eight companies caught up in the blacklisting scandal have pledged to pay at least £4,000 to workers on the controversial database.

The Construction Workers Compensation Scheme opened to applications this morning from those on The Consulting Association’s records.

The Consulting Association was shut down after an Information Commissioners Office raid in 2009..

Applicants to the compensation scheme can choose a fast-track process to claim up to £20,000.

A full review process is also available and will see an adjudicator assess claims and set compensation up to a maximum of £100,000.

Balfour Beatty, Carillion, Costain, Kier, Laing O’Rourke, Sir Robert McAlpine, Skanska UK and Vinci formed the compensation scheme after apologising for their involvement with The Consulting Association.
