CBI responds to Government employment law announcements

The CBI responded to the Secretary of State for Business, Dr Vince Cable’s announcement on employment law reform.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said: “Businesses want to see progress on key areas of employment law reform. The Government has identified the right issues to address – unclogging time-consuming employment tribunals, encouraging early fair settlement of disputes and reform to TUPE and redundancy rules that heap red tape onto business.

“As in other areas of government policy, what really matters now is taking action to deliver real change on the ground. Firms will judge the Government’s performance on how quickly and effectively these changes start to have a positive impact on their businesses, not the state of the debate in Whitehall.”

Notes to Editors:

The CBI is the UK's leading business organisation, speaking for some 240,000 businesses that together employ around a third of the private sector workforce. With offices across the UK as well as representation in Brussels, Washington, Beijing and Delhi the CBI communicates the British business voice around the world.

The CBI Annual Conference 2012, Forging a New Economic Future, will take place on Monday 19 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, featuring an exceptional line up of business and political speakers.
