Scrapping Unfair Dismissal Laws?

A report by Adrian Beecroft for Downing Street, leaked to the Daily Telegraph, suggests scrapping unfair dismissal laws to make it easier to remove non-performing workers. Stand by for huge controversy, not least within the Coalition!

This blog is not a forum for politics, but this is one of those areas where you cannot have your cake and eat it. More protection for workers means that it is more expensive and troublesome to employ people, and in some cases leaves workers covering for the lazy. Making it easier to dismiss makes it easier to employ people, but leaves workers at risk of arbitrary sacking.

I suspect the answer depends on your political views.
