Employment Law in the Midst of the Deluge

Written by David Renton
What is the point of employment law? Should you try to work out an answer to the question through the changes which the Coalition government has been making in 2012 and 2013, the first thing you would conclude is that the law exists to rewrite industrial relations to the benefit of employers at the expense of workers.
Recently the media reported the story of Paris Brown, the former youth police and crime commissioner for Kent, who was forced to resign from her post on 9 April 2013, after the Mail on Sunday publicised tweets she had previously made and which could be considered homophobic and racist. The comments were made by 17 year old Paris when she was aged between 14 and 16.
I noticed this interesting report - Pilot Scheme Tackles Long-Term Sickness Absence - on the BBC website the other day and it looks like this important initiative is finally being publicised more widely. In 2011 the report, Health at work: an independent review of sickness absence, by Dame Carol Black was released by the Government. This report reviewed the health of Britain's working age population and made a number of recommendations to reduce workplace sickness absence and the cost of ill health on individuals, employers and the taxpayer.
