Somewhere to turn [ 51 kb] - The case for a fair employment commission

Since 1997, the Government has, in its own words, “worked hard to achieve a better deal for all working people”, by establishing “a framework of decent workplace standards”. This ‘framework’ has given “people at work essential rights – rights to a National Minimum Wage, rights to trade union recognition, rights for part-time workers, [and] rights to paid holiday”. For the Government recognises that “fairness and enterprise go together” – that is, that individuals work best when they are properly rewarded and able to achieve an effective balance between work, family and leisure.
