In this comment the author discusses the effect of the Laidlaw doctrine upon an economic striker's right to reinstatement. The author traces the historical development of the doctrine and addresses the four principal issues surrounding it: the duration of the right to reinstatement; the limitation of the right by agreement; the doctrine of substantially equivalent employment; and the so-called "business justification" rule.
