BT Employees May Still Be Entitled to Compensation

Many current and former British Telecom employees could still be able to claim compensation for hearing loss they contracted due to using faulty testing sets for telephone lines.

BT had admitted in a case in August 2010 that engineers had been provided with kits that damaged their hearing. Their acknowledgement meant that many engineers who sustained injuries years in the past were eligible for compensation as BT decided not to enforce the three-year Statute of Limitations.

They reversed this decision in June 2012, meaning that from January 2013 any BT employee seeking hearing injury compensation would have to do so under the three year rule imposed in the Statute of Limitations.
