Ruling gives bad employers 'green light' to exploit staff

The GMB union, which is behind today's rally against the introduction of fees for workers who want to sue bosses, says the move will allow bad employers to exploit their staff.

The imposition of such fees represents the latest in a number of attacks on employment rights by the Government.

Bad employers are being given the green light to continue exploiting their staff.

The charging of £1,200 effectively means that many workers will lose any chance they had to seek redress if they are poorly treated.
