In the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, about five miles east of Pickering, lies the village and civil parish of Allerston. This quiet and unassuming village has a very interesting history – it was once where unemployed men were sent to do heavy labour, in one of the Ministry of Labour’s ‘Instructional Centres’. The scheme was supposed to ‘harden up’ the young unemployed men, but was closed before the 2nd world war as unemployment figures dwindled.
It is doubtful that those young men would have been able to get justice if they suffered an injury in their ‘workplace’, such were the times back then. But thankfully the world has moved on, and these days employers have certain responsibilities to their employers (paying them for starters!) and employees have a right to expect a certain degree of safety and wellbeing at work. In some cases, however, employers will simply not follow health and safety procedures as rigorously as they should, or they will not allow workers to take the necessary breaks they require to prevent injury. If you are an employee and this applies to you, then you should give Accident Advice Helpline a call – our specialist injury lawyers in Allerston may be able to help you seek justice.
