Posted 11/06/2012

The government is set to announce changes to employment law this week that it claims will allow members of staff to leave their organisation with “dignity”.Planned reform of the current rules have been widely criticised by the likes of business minister Vince Cable, but the Conservative-led coalition is pressing on with the amendments.Announcing the employment law update, the Liberal Democrat employment minister and North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb pointed out the law will come into force when the relationship between employer and employee has not worked out.”An employee leaving by agreement can do so with their dignity intact. The employer secures peace of mind knowing that they will not face expensive tribunal proceedings,” he said.However, a range of business leaders have already criticised the planned measures – which are being introduced in a bid to persuade companies to create jobs.The Institute of Directors also slammed a review ordered by Mr Cable as a “nonsense”.Posted by Hywel Griffiths
