BEECROFT REPORT'S PROPOSAL FOR NO FAULT DISMISSAL
EDM #132
Tabled 23 May 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House calls on the Government not to proceed with the Beecroft report's recommendation to introduce no fault dismissal which would mean people at work would be able to be fired at will without warning, creating huge insecurity for millions; notes that, as Adrian Beecroft admits in his report, he strongly favours an approach which allows an employer to dismiss anyone without giving a reason, which as in the leaked, first described draft would mean that some people would be dismissed simply because their employer did not like them, which he regards as `a price worth paying'; agrees with the conclusion of professional experts, such as the Chartered Institute for Personnel Development, who say that there is no economic benefit to the proposal and that if you look at the evidence on unfair dismissal, there isn't actually anything to suggest that watering down those rights would create any more jobs and indeed the job insecurity it would create would actually be bad for the economy and businesses; and considers itimperative that the Government rejects this unfair and unnecessary proposal which would undermine thework security of millions and could lead to harmindustrial relations and productive workplaces.
