lockout
In the context of industrial action, there is no definition at common law or for unfair dismissal cases, although for the purposes of calculating periods of continuous employment, lock-out is defined as "the closing of a place of employment or suspension of work or a refusal by the employer to continue to employ any number of persons done with a view to compelling persons employed by the employer to accept terms or conditions of employment or affecting employment" (section 235(4), Employment Rights Act 1996). There is no restriction on employers using temporary or substitute labour during a strike or lock-out although this may inflame the dispute.
