When people are involved in a trade dispute, they will often not be paid. As anyone who has ever been unemployed for any length of time will tell you, the one small silver lining if you have no weekly income is that you may well get a tax refund. However, when somebody is on strike, the employer is expected to invoke special procedures and, under no circumstances, to pay any refund that is due.
The repayments due are eventually allowed to be paid when the strike ends, the employee dies or the employee leaves the employer. Whilst this may seem relatively straightforward there is an appeals procedure which the employee can follow which can lead to the special procedures being inappropriate.
