Since the inception of the Trade Unions in the 17th Century in Britain, efforts have progressively been made to protect the workers from certain activities of the employers who are perceived to have stronger bargaining power in employment relations. Practices and customs over the years, as well as legislations, Conventions, Recommendations and Protocols have been made to legally protect the workers from the might and capitalist tendencies of the employer. These laws provide for fairness and equity in employment relations in the workplace. A derogation from them would automatically result in unfair practice and therefore be considered detrimental to the worker.
