While most of the countries, including England, suffer recession everyone is afraid what the future can bring us. And here is one more thing which might make us even more stressed.
A move to allow employers to sack underperforming workers, without explanation, is the key recommendation in the Downing Street report leaked to The Daily Telegraph.
It says that British workers should be banned from claiming unfair dismissal so that firms and public sector bodies can find more capable replacements.
Under current regulations, workers are allowed to “coast along” and employers are left fearful of expanding because new staff may prove “unknown quantities” who are impossible to sack, the report says.
However, Mr Adrian Beecroft- the capitalist and Tory donor, warns that simply scrapping the law would be “politically unacceptable”. He therefore recommends a replacement regulation, called Compensated No Fault Dismissal, which would allow employers to sack unproductive staff with basic redundancy pay and notice.
Mr Beecroft concedes that a “downside” under his new scheme is that employers could fire staff because they “did not like them”. He also insists that making it easier for firms to sack under-performing staff will boost employment, rather than increase unemployment.
Shall we start worrying about our future in the organisation? The hit may come if not today then tomorrow.
