Red Tape Challenge
The government has opened a three week consultation period for employment legislation under its 'Red Tape Challenge' scheme, aimed at inviting the public to comment on how laws can be simplified.
The Red Tape Challenge, available here, is divided into four sections:
Compliance and Enforcement;
Letting People Go;
Managing Staff; and,
Taking People On
You add your comments on employment law regulation to a 'comments' section on the website, which strikes me as notable only for the lack of any balanced views. My favourite is from the chap who complains about all the abbreviations in employment law which he finds difficult to understand, even though he has a (in his words) 'MBA'.
This archive contains Daniel Barnett's employment law email bulletins which are posted when an email bulletin is sent out. To receive these bulletins by email you can subscribe for free.
Over 28,000 people, including solicitors, barristers, HR professionals and employment tribunal judges, receive these bulletins.
Daniel Barnett is a barrister at Outer Temple Chambers, with over 15 years' experience defending companies facing employment tribunal claims and associated commercial disputes. He is listed as a leading employment barrister in the ‘Legal 500′, and described in the Times Law Supplement as having “carved out a strong reputation”.
Daniel regularly advises and represents large and small businesses in discrimination claims, TUPE problems, team moves, removal of confidential business information, and unfair dismissal disputes. He has been appointed as employment law advisor to Acas since 2004, and is the author or co-author of seven legal textbooks.
