CBI COMMENTS ON GOVERNMENT’S WELFARE REFORM WHITE PAPER
John Cridland, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:
“We support the Government’s plans to make work pay by getting more people into the jobs market and off benefits which will encourage economic growth.
“As the economy recovers and the private sector creates jobs, companies must be able to access people with the right skills and work ethic. The Government should make the most of private and voluntary sector expertise in helping the long-term unemployed back into work.
“It is important that administration of the universal credit is simple. We would be concerned about any moves to take away responsibility for paying staff from companies, as this could undermine the relationship between employers and employees.”
