Business secretary presents Regulatory Reform Bill to simplify employment law and help private sector create jobs
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) said the Bill is a "central element in the Government's aim for strong, sustainable and balanced growth, powered by investment, exports, technology and enterprise".
Subject to the will of Parliament, the Bill will deliver legislation aimed at encouraging long-term growth by improving the employment tribunal system by encouraging parties to come together to settle their dispute before an employment tribunal claim is lodged, through Acas early conciliation and greater use of Settlement Agreements.
It will also make the determination of less complex disputes quicker and cheaper for employers and employees alike, through a new 'Rapid Resolution' scheme.
