Plans To Simplify Staff Dismissals

The BBC are reporting that new plans to allow employers to dismiss staff using a settlement agreement have been announced by Business Secretary Vince Cable.

The proposal is to provide employers and employees with an alternative to employment tribunals to solve workplace problems. British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) have both welcomed the plans saying they would give businesses confidence and simplify the dismissal process.
