Changes at work
7:30pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A SHAKE-UP in employment law could make staff feel less secure in the workplace, according to a South Somerset law firm.
New rules and regulations were introduced by the Government at the end of July after a wide-ranging consultation with businesses in 2011.
Ian Pearson, employment expert with AmicusLaw Solicitors in Yeovil, said: “Employers had complained time and time again that UK labour law too strongly favoured the employee and business was hampered with the threat of litigation by staff always hanging over them.
“These new rules go some way to address the concerns raised.”
Mr Pearson said the greatest change was that disgruntled employees would have to pay a fee to issue proceedings.
