A leaked Government report, commissioned by the Prime Minister, calls for the right for employees to claim unfair dismissal, to be abolished.
The report comes from Adrian Beecroft, a venture capitalist and Conservative Party donor. Mr Beecroft`s report also argues that the unfair dismissal law is particularly abused by some in the public sector.
Downing Street has denied any plans to abolish unfair dismissal laws, although it is committed to reforming employment laws.
This news comes on the back of a recent announcement by the coalition Government, that from April 2012, an employee will need to have been employed for a least two years before being entitled to make a claim for unfair dismissal.
