We do however provide funding to specialist external partners, Lucie Blackman Trust and Victim Support, who can provide practical support to bereaved families. This help takes many forms, but can include securing financial help. more like this

star this property answer text In cases of terrorism, the Statutory Victims of Terrorism Scheme covers both fatal and personal injury applications, and is administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). The latter, reporting to the Ministry of Justice, has received 18 applications related to fatalities since its introduction, on 27 November 2012, and has paid £228,807 across eight successful claims, with seven claims still in process. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not provide compensation to the families of British nationals murdered abroad, but does provide advice when there is a relevant local compensation scheme in the country concerned. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Workers within the offshore oil and gas industry in internal or territorial waters, or working regarding exploitation of the continental shelf, are entitled to the same protections as UK workers. This includes receiving the National Minimum Wage for all their work on installation, construction and maintenance, regardless of nationality or where they ordinarily work. As with all other workers, their terms and conditions of employment are for negotiation and agreement between employers and employees (or their representatives). Once agreed they form a legally binding contract of employment. While it is always open to either party to seek to renegotiate the terms of the contract, if the employer changes any of the terms without the employee’s agreement, the employee may be entitled to seek legal redress.</p><p> </p><p>Agency workers’ rights conferred by the Agency Worker Regulations 2010 are self-enforced at an Employment Tribunal. The enforcement body for the recruitment sector, the Employment Agency Standards inspectorate (EAS), investigates every relevant complaint that falls under its remit as set out in the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and has a strong track record in upholding the rights of agency workers.</p>
