New employment laws will be costly for business

New employment laws due to be implemented over the next four years will cost UK businesses a staggering £22.87bn, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has revealed.


The BCC’s Employment Timeline shows a raft of new employment legislation which is set to come into force between April 2011 and April 2015. With seven major changes planned for 2011 alone, the BCC is urging the Government to match its rhetoric with reality – by starting the deregulation process and scrapping costly employment laws which are a burden on business, particularly smaller firms.


The BCC welcomes the promised reform of the employment tribunal system in the UK, but points out that there is no timescale for its implementation, and the potential cost savings to business are dwarfed by the cost of new employment burdens.
