Jobs law changes spark challenges

Have your say

Government changes of mind on employment law are resulting in more litigation, according to a leading Sheffield lawyer.

Employment law expert Jay Bhayani, from Bhayani Bracewell, was responding to recent comments by Business Secretary Vince Cable.

Ms Bhayani said: “I am rather confused by the Government’s constant chopping and changing of employment legislation and wonder what the real aim is. Is it to create more jobs? Is it to allow companies to sack employees more easily?

“The constant shifting of position by the Government, in my view, is one of the reasons we have so much litigation.”
