Abstract

The government has recently announced plans to make it easier for businesses to hire and fire people by extending the period for unfair dismissal protection, reduce the time that they have to consult over proposed redundancies, and by giving them the ability for “protected conversations” with employees. Sarah Veale argues that these reforms are not needed; employment regulations are in no way a major concern for small firms, and that they have the potential to have very negative consequences for employees.
