Employment law reform – the consultation

by Laurie Anstis on February 3, 2011

Last week the government introduced its “Resolving Workplace Disputes” paper. This week I have been looking at and commenting on a number of the proposals.

Other employment lawyers have weighed in on the proposals generally, specific issues (and here) or the accompanying “Employer’s Charter“, and there is will be more to come with guest posts on Xpert HR’s Tribunal Watch blog.

This final part of my series of blog posts is a plea for employment lawyers to get involved in the consultation process, and to submit their views (whatever they might be) to the government by the deadline of 20 April 2011. The response form is here (doc). Sound legal arguments have been raised in relation to a number of the proposals, but I don’t suppose the government is paying much attention to our blog posts, tweets, or water-cooler discussions. The only way to really get involved is to reply to the consultation.
