Group calls for no fault dismissal changes

Group calls for no fault dismissal changes

Changes need to be made to the government's proposed employment law reforms, a body has warned.

According to the EEF - which represents organisations in the manufacturing industry - the Conservative-Liberal Democrat alliance should review its plans to implement a system of no fault dismissal.

Ahead of the deadline for evidence on the proposals this Friday (June 8th), the EEF has today urged the administration to re-focus its efforts elsewhere, as there is little backing among manufacturers for no fault dismissal.

The body noted that such a new rule would serve only to undermine efforts made by employers to improve their flexible working practices and productivity over recent times.

Terry Scuoler, chief executive of the EEF, insisted the case for no fault dismissal is "far from proven".

"We've found little support from industry for introducing no-fault dismissal, its benefits look pretty limited and we've seen no evidence that it would increase recruitment," he added.
