This document is designed to give employers, and their customers and suppliers, a general understanding of the law relating to industrial action. In particular, it describes legal remedies against certain forms of industrial action. The document will also assist trade unions, and workers, to understand the protections afforded them by the law if they organise or take industrial action. It may also be useful for individuals contemplating proceedings under the 'Citizen's Right' to restrain the unlawful organisation of industrial action (i.e. inducement of industrial action which is unprotected by statutory immunity). The legislative and underlying common law provisions are dealt with only in outline and details which might be significant in any particular case may not be covered. This document gives general guidance only, and is not a substitute for professional legal advice.
