From April 2009

Introduced in 2004 , the Dispute Resolution Regulations are to be simplified.

The New " Employment Simplication Bill " comes into force where the three stage process currently in place will be repealed.

This is good news for the Employer, not so much for the employee, but will lead to huge administrative savings for companies.

A new simpler, transparent , enforcement and penalties regime will then apply.

Note: Until enforcement some time in April, the existing DDR procedures will still apply.

Thanks for the update Abe.
It is always good to know when our terms and conditions are being affected.
Could I be rude and ask your opinion,as to what the fundermental changes are?
Or is it another of these huge rafts of paperwork that will take forever to decipher?
On a personnel note, I an surrounded by people that are being rationalised.
Or having working hours/ pay rises reduced.

Thx for your input Grizzly

I will post details as they come to hand. At present as you know before any dismissal can take place you have to effect a three step process where you invite the employee and issue a letter, or first warning.

The Second stage you issue a further warning, and the last step constitutes a Final warning and or dismissal.

Failure to effect these steps will constitute an unfair dismissal.

Grievance procedures must similarly be executed where one has been applied for.

All this will mow be simplified. I am not sure on the "raft" of paperwork , but as its a simplication bill I expect this to be simplified accordingly.

Will keep you posted on this one.
