    Abstract

    We know that on the 1st May 2004 the European Union(EU) witnessed its most challenging enlargement, with the accession of eight central and eastern European member states. What is also known is that many of these workers suffered poor conditions of employment (TUC 2004; Carby-Hall, 2007; Fitzgerald 2007). What is less well known is that these poor conditions have involved injuries at the workplace, sometimes fatal, often as a result of employer neglect. This piece discusses the finding of a Centre for Corporate Accountability investigation into migrant workplace deaths in Britain.
