IoD reform proposals would affect employment law

The Institute of Directors (IoD) has put forward two dozen policy changes over ten areas of Government policy which could transform growth prospects at little or no cost to the taxpayer, including a number that would directly impact on employment law.

These ‘freebies’ are a mix of immediate measures to boost private sector growth and long-term commitments aimed at creating a positive vision for the UK. 

Proposals relevant to the field of employment law include:

  • Introducing a minimum £500 employee deposit in employment tribunals to deter weak cases so that managers can focus on business growth. 
  • Abolishing the right to request flexible working, as the IoD believes that this right creates red tape for firms, and does little or nothing to boost flexible working.
  • Abolishing the right to request time off for training, as the IoD believes that this right creates red tape for firms, and does little or nothing to boost training for workers.
  • Ending national collective bargaining in the NHS and Education sector to drive up productivity.
