Further evidence has emerged that employers have had little trouble accommodating the sweeping changes in employment law that have taken place in the last few years.
Findings from a survey of 300 employers by law firm DLA show that the majority of employers believe the changes in employment law have had a positive effect.
The only areas of employment legislation where employers felt changes had been detrimental were working time, and the unresolved issue of agency workers’ rights.
The survey also asked employers questions on industrial relations. This revealed that 32 per cent had experienced industrial unrest in the previous 12 months (down from 49 per cent in 2003).
