Exempt small businesses from anti- discrimination and unfair dismissal legislation.

Comment 10th July 2010

Exempt  businesses with less than 30 employees from anti- discrimination employment laws and from unfair dismissal claims.

Small businesses lack the resources to monitor these laws and the cost and time they are required to invest in setting up such systems and defending themselves are unreasonable.

In the case of anti-discrimination businesses are more likely to advertise vacancies when they do not have to fear being caught up by this legislation where at present these job offers will only be made to people that are known to the management.

So far as unfair dismissal is concerned it cannot be right that an entire business can be put at risk by the award of a large compensation payment for unfair or constructive dismissal. It is also unreasonable to require small businesses to hold a job open for a pregnant female or to have to grant part time work to someone who was employed on the basis of working full time.
