Govt welcomes employment law recommendations

Govt welcomes employment law recommendations

Businesses and their workers have been urged by the government to play a more active role in shaping the country's future employment law.

The Conservative-Liberal Democrat alliance announced last week (June 24th) that it is welcoming dialogue with companies and individuals operating in all sectors as to how it can go about improving the country's legislative system.

This forms part of the coalition's Red Tape Challenge, a scheme that has been designed with the intention of reducing the legislative burden faced by firms in order to help them grow in the aftermath of the global economic downturn.

For instance, the government has asked businesses to provide it with details on which aspects of employment law they feel could be changed for the better, as well as their views on whether or not the present rules are flexible enough.

Mark Prisk, business minister and MP for Hertford and Stortford, called on companies to "tell us about the good, the bad and the ugly side of how the regulations you deal with are enforced".
