Business urges government to do more to create jobs

Business leaders have urged ministers to do more to help companies create a “pro-employment landscape” as a change to employment law comes into force.Business urges government to do more to create jobsThe government claimed that it was “cutting red tape”, getting cheaper business loans and boosting investment.

“Some of the key actions we’ve taken to encourage job creation include introducing measures to get cheaper loans to businesses, as well as boosting investment and creating the most competitive business tax system in the developed world,” said a Department for Business spokesperson.

“Of 250 economic reforms announced in 2011, 98% have either been completed or have made good progress.”

But the CBI questioned if the change would give employers confidence to take on more staff.

Neil Bentley, the CBI’s deputy director general, said: “As we approach the halfway point in this Parliament, we’ve heard plenty of talk, but seen little action.

“Employers want to see the government doing more to create a pro-employment landscape.”

John Longworth, director general of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said: “Doubling the qualifying period for unfair dismissal to two years sends the right message to business.

“Although this is a good start, more changes are needed if the government is to create a really hard-hitting deregulatory package for the labour market.  This includes reforming redundancy rules, introducing a no-fault dismissal route and following through on fees for tribunal claimants.”
