Call You and Yours: Employment Law

Duration:
55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 18 September 2012

Who should benefit from employment law? The employer or employee? The government has announced some changes to employment law but but do they benefit employers too much? So what do you think? Is it about time that it was made easier for businesses to get rid of people not pulling their weight? Or as an employee, do you feel you need protection from unscrupulous employers. What is employment law for and who should benefit from it? Perhaps you work for a small business and can tell us of your struggle with unproductive workers -- or are you a worker that has been badly treated in the past? Have you won a tribunal but under the new legislation would not have been able to take that case forward? Or maybe you are an employee picking up the slack for other people not working hard enough - in that case would you like for it to be even easier for businesses to get rid of people who can't do the job and get someone in who can do the job?
That's the subject of our call. If you would like to take part, then 03700 100 400 is the phone number to call or you can e-mail via the Radio 4 website or text us on 84844 to share your experience and opinion.
