Rights at work under attack

The Government is proposing ideas under the misleading mantra of ‘deregulation’ which show that it is biased against the interests of workers and which will help bad employers to treat their workers poorly. Please contact your MP to urge them to defend workers’ legal rights.

The proposals are in the new Enterprise & Regulatory Reform Bill coming before Parliament.

  • it throws up barriers that make it harder for people to access justice if they have been treated unfairly at work;
  • it lowers the amount of compensation working people can receive;
  • it introduces “settlement agreements” – making it easier for employers to offer employees money to leave; and
  • if employees reject a settlement agreement, they won’t be able to use the discussion about the proposed settlement agreement as evidence in an employment tribunal.

Please click on the link above to urge your MP to vote against the bill.
