The CBI have commented on the Business Secretary, Vince Cable’s plans to introduce simplified settlement agreements, designed to enable employers and employees to agree mutually acceptable terms for ending employment.
Neil Carberry, CBI Director for Employment & Skills, said:
‘Today’s announcement will simplify the process of ending an employment relationship in a way which is acceptable to both sides.’
‘Simplified settlement agreements will give firms the confidence to have a frank conversation about ending employment on fair terms, without the fear of a drawn-out and costly tribunal claim.’
‘The CBI has long taken the view that simpler and more legally certain settlement agreements would be more effective for employees and businesses, especially smaller firms.’
