BCC: No fault dismissal route would send the right message to business

15 Mar 2012

Commenting on the announcement made by the government today on proposals to launch a consultation on no fault dismissal rules, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

“Employers have long argued that rules around dismissal do not work for business, so a new no fault dismissal route would be an extremely positive step forward, and would send the message that the government is serious about de-regulation. If these proposals are given the go ahead, it would allow for the swift resolution of a dismissal, and some firms would be willing to pay a premium to achieve this.

“This is a big step in the right direction, but it should be part of a package of reforms, including reforming redundancy rules and introducing tribunal fees for claimants. A substantial overhaul of employment regulations will give businesses confidence to invest and grow, and in turn drive economic recovery.”
