Another attack on Justice?
A report commissioned by the PM suggests "unproductive workers" should not have the right to claim unfair dismissal.
It seems to suggest there are many employees not being productive! It's normally very simple to spot an unproductive employee early into the contract so that they can be dismissed within the qualifying period for unfair dismissal. Employees should not in any circumsances be denied their right to challenge a dismissal.
It makes sense to discourage vexatious litigants and hopeless cases. Government plans to introduce fees for bringing employment tribunal cases next year may go some way to discourage cases unlikely to be succesful. This coupled with increased use of expenses awards should help to minimise the chancers. Famous last words.....
