Safety and Employment Laws to be Relaxed

The reasons for unfair dismissal are to be relaxed at employment tribunals under proposals announced by business secretary Vince Cable.

The Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) are to make a number of proposals to cut back on red tape.

The BIS is also seeking to consider reducing the limit on unfair dismissal payouts.

The main principle behind the report is to make it easier and cheaper to dismiss staff. However plans to allow employers to sack employees through “no fault” dismissals have been axed.

Currently, the maximum number compensation that can be awarded to employees being unfairly dismissed is £72,300. Cable is currently considering capping this to either 12 month’s pay of £26,000.
