Govt invites employment law suggestions

Govt invites employment law suggestions

The government has called on companies and professionals in the business sector to make recommendations on how the UK's employment law can be made better and more efficient.

In recent times, the country's legislative system has come under heavy criticism from analysts and managers, as it is perceived to involve excessive levels of red tape and bureaucracy.

The Conservative-Liberal Democrat alliance has pledged to abolish many of these burdens in a bid to help stimulate the nation's post-recession recovery and has now launched its Red Tape Challenge website.

This resource invites professionals to make suggestions on how the administration can go about successfully de-regulating the business environment and remove a high percentage of the 21,000 clauses currently in place.

And equalities minister Lynne Featherstone has insisted the coalition is "committed to economic prosperity and reducing unnecessary rules and regulations" and therefore welcomes pointers on how it can simplify or enhance the Equality Act 2010.
