§ 77. Sir T. Beamish
asked the Minister of Labour in how many instances since 1950 an employer has been fined for 21W failing to comply with the terms of the Reinstatement in Civil Employment Act, 1950 and the Reserve and Auxiliary Forces (Protection of Civil Interests) Act, 1951 with regard to men or women reservists released after military service; what proportion this is of the cases investigated; and what have been the maximum, minimum and average fines imposed.
§ Mr. Gunter
I have no record that any employer has been fined for failure to comply with an Order made under the Reinstatement in Civil Employment Act, 1950. It would be possible, however, for a reservist on whose behalf a reinstatement order had been made to take enforcement action on his own account without consulting my Ministry.
The Reserve and Auxiliary Forces (Protection of Civil Interests) Act, 1951 imposes no penalties on employers.
