London, United Kingdom – 28 May 2012 – The recent findings from the Beecroft review make interesting reading, stating that the UK government should alter UK employment law to make redundancy a shorter process and enable employers to hire new people into roles easier. The conclusion provided is that this would ultimately open up the UK employment market and help get people back into work; stimulating the UK economy. However Nick Clegg has attacked the government-commissioned plan to make it easier for firms to fire staff, warning that the proposal would create widespread "fear" among workers. Also in the news last week was that the large IT giant Hewlett Packard (HP) are having to make some tough decisions, with their current announcement of proposed UK redundancies which could total as many as 27,000.
