A new analysis of the economics of employment regulation claims that the opposition of much of the business lobby to many employment rights betrays an underlying bias against employment regulation which at times flies in the face of economic evidence.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is concerned that Government plans to extend flexible working and introduce changes to parental leave, at a time when it has committed to cutting red tape, will hit small businesses hard.
The Government has announced new areas that it will consider reforming as part of its review of employment red tape – including collective redundancy consultation periods, the Transfer Undertakings Protection of Employment Regulations (TUPE) and compensation for discrimination awarded by employment tribunals.
The Institute of Directors (IoD) has argued in its response to the consultation ‘Resolving Workplace Disputes’ that the Government’s proposed reforms to the employment tribunal system are flawed. The IoD does not believe that the proposals will achieve any significant reduction in the number of weak complaints or costs to business in terms of management time and lawyers’ fees.
