The Beecroft Report: The Twitter Response

 

 

Twitter, well the bits of it I frequent anyway, have been abuzz with comments on the leaked Beecroft report which proposes abolishing unfair dismissal in capability cases.  I blogged on it this morning – click here.

Amidst all the tweets announcing the news there were some interesting and amusing comments, which I’ve collected below.  Most tweets I have seen are against the plans, a few make the point that the real issue is one of management and a few support it.  This is only a brief snapshot and I didn’t set out to try and gauge public opinion, although it seems those in favour are in the minority.

Unfair dismissal law protects people who've been dismissed UNFAIRLY. Anyone wanting to scrap that law, ipso facto, supports unfairness.

Thing is, although the 'compensated no fault dismissal' is fiendish and wrong - I can at least see how it would work. #ukemplaw
