Red Tape Challenge on employment law

Close date: 19 October 2011

The Government's Red Tape Challenge, which aims to reduce the regulatory burden on business, focuses on employment law. The Government invites views on whether or not existing employment laws are necessary and appropriate, the value of simplifying employment law, and whether or not the implementation and enforcement of employment law needs to be improved. There are four categories on which comments are sought: compliance and enforcement; letting people go; managing staff; and taking people on. The Red Tape Challenge is accompanied by a discussion document, Flexible, effective, fair: Promoting economic growth through a strong and efficient labour market (PDF format, 172K) (on the BIS website), which sets out the principles that are guiding the Government's review.
