No fault dismissal consigned to the dusty quarters of the House of Commons library


No fault dismissal consigned to the dusty quarters of the House of Commons library – comments from Employment Lawyer Philip Henson (Partner at DKLM LLP)

Philip Henson, Partner and Joint Head of Employment Law at City Law firm DKLM LLP comments as follows:

“Very few employment lawyers will be surprised that the radical proposal for ‘compensated no fault dismissal’ will be consigned to the dusty quarters of the House of Commons library – no doubt bound together by the jagged offcuts from the Government’s red tape challenge”.

“Those who trumpeted the idea of no fault dismissal as some sort of astounding catalyst for growth should consider the thought-provoking statistic from the OECD – highlighted in the Department for Business Innovation & Skill’s (BIS) own call for evidence paper –that, in regulatory terms the UK is joint second in the world (behind the US and alongside Canada) for ease of individual dismissal.”
