CBI calls for removal of barriers for high-growth firms

The CBI has called on the Chancellor to focus his March Budget on areas that do most to boost economic growth and job creation.


In a letter to George Osborne, the CBI outlines its priorities for the Government’s Growth Review, alongside broader measures to enhance competitiveness. A key priority identified by the CBI is the removal of barriers for high-growth firms.


To help firms get on with growing their businesses and creating jobs, the CBI is calling for changes to regulations that are hampering firms. These include: restoring the two year unfair dismissal qualifying period to give companies more time to assess the potential of a new employee, thereby giving firms the confidence to hire new staff without the threat of a tribunal if it doesn’t work out.


In addition, the CBI believes that the tribunals system should be strengthened to weed out weak and vexatious claims.
