DTI reissues legislation guidance

Employment law has proved an expensive business for the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) after it had to pulp a new legislation guide because it was incorrect.
The DTI spent £203,000 reprinting the leaflet because officials complained that it was misleading, according to The Times newspaper.
The guide, which outlines the new dispute resolution procedures, said employees had the right to be accompanied by a union official or other representative in an appeals procedure, when in fact they have this right at any stage of disciplinary proceedings.
The DTI said that the guidance was meant to be read in conjunction with information on its website, but said it ‘could be misleading’ and so reissued the guidance leaflets.
