The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has said the Government's new employment proposals will be judged on how "quickly and effectively" future changes are implemented.
Businesses want to see progress on key areas of employment law reform.
The Government has identified the right issues to address – unclogging time-consuming employment tribunals, encouraging early fair settlement of disputes and reform to TUPE and redundancy rules that heap red tape onto business.
As in other areas of government policy, what really matters now is taking action to deliver real change on the ground.
Firms will judge the Government’s performance on how quickly and effectively these changes start to have a positive impact on their businesses, not the state of the debate in Whitehall.
