Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is asking employers to get in touch over plans to reform employment law.

First in the Coalition sights for reform is discrimination legislation, where the government fears businesses are settling even when faced with weak cases because compensation is theoretically unlimited.

Osborne also wants to hear what people think of Tupe rules – under which employees' rights are maintained if their department or company is sold.

Tupe rules cover how staff are usually protected when jobs are outsourced from a government department to a private company.

The Coalition also wants to hear your views on collective redundancy – specifically the need for 90 days consultation.

Next week there will be another consultation on parental leave.

The press release is here. ®
