Change to employment law ‘will not create jobs’

Changes to employment law being proposed by the coalition government are not going to encourage companies in the UK to create jobs.This is the view of Jacqueline Gold, chief executive officer of Ann Summers and Knickerbox, who stated the recommendations made in the Beecroft report will not make a difference.The government is looking to push through changes that would make it easier for businesses to fire members of staff, but the plans have drawn criticism from the Labour Party, the Law Society and business minister Vince Cable, among others.Ms Gold explained that companies do not stop employing more staff due to concerns about being able to let them go easily if it does not work out.”You learn to adapt to the conditions and you have to make sure that you do manage performance,” she said, while founder of Bigham’s high-end ready meals Charlie Bigham added he agrees it will not lead to job creation in the UK.Posted by Hywel Griffiths
