Beecroft report on employment law published


A pretty flimsy document.

Apparently employers are incapable of judging during a period of 2 years whether an employee can do his/her job or not. They need an indefinite period of no-fault dismissal.

The problem with loons like Beecroft is they place absolute trust in the idea that employers will only dismiss employees for reasons of competence, which cuts against the grain of decades worth of case law.

For once Vince Cable has made himself useful and shot most of the recommendations down.
I've always wondered how making people too scared of arbitrary unemployment to spend anything they don't absolutely have to will help the economy.

Anyone who thinks employers will be reluctant to use this instead of redundancy procedures plainly left their hallucinogen-intolerance in the 60s.
Well, the plot thickens:

Controversial Beecroft report on employment reform 'doctored' by No 10 - Telegraph

A document leaked to The Daily Telegraph shows that three proposals in the controversial Beecroft report were removed after being submitted to No10 before it was sent to the Business Department. They called for the Government to delay plans to introduce flexible working for parents, to abandon proposals to allow all workers to request flexible working, and to remove regulations surrounding the employment of children.
All that talk of a return to 'traditional British values' wasn't just hot air, then?

If it's been sent from my HTC Sensation using Tapatalk then I'm probably pissed.

Maybe that's what they had in mind when they used the phrase - children back in factories.
