Government helps firms over employment red tape

New
measures to help firms understand and implement employment regulations are to
be introduced, Employment Relations Minister Alan Johnson announced today. The
moves include:


Consulting on how harmonising start dates for domestic regulations could best
work in practice


Piloting free or subsidised employment law advice visits to employers of less
than 50 employees


Running a number of pilot schemes giving a shared HR resource to small firms

The
Better Regulation Task Force report on employment regulation was published on
15 May this year. The DTI has co-ordinated the response on behalf of the
Government.

Details
of the Government’s response to the task force’s recommendations can be found
