    Default Should we be worried about this meddling?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6986953.stm

    The CBI has warned that new rights for agency staff, which are being discussed by EU employment ministers this week, would cost up to 250,000 jobs.

    The employers' group says it is "very concerned" about the effects of giving agency staff the same rights as full time employees.


    I get very worried when our government, Unions, the EU and any other useless bunch of meddling fools start talking about "agency staff", "agency contracts" and "temps" and "employment" and such like.

    Unfortunately, the CBI said the minimum wage would cost 250,000 jobs as well, and did it?

    Yes. There would be precisely 250,000 more jobs if the minimum wage hadn't been implemented.

    So long as you are opted-out of the agency regulations then this shouldn't affect you, right?

    If you run a limited company and have a proper b-2-b contract, this should not apply to you.

    You would hope wouldn't you? That would be the sensible thing wouldn't it? Common sense and all that.

    But with the EU and New Labour, backed by Unions, looking into tigher legislation to come, can you be so sure?

    No, of course, you are right. We are in safe hands here.

    Surely it just depends how HR departments (over) react to any legislation for example the Microsoft case (sued for employment rights by temp worker) now means most large US Co' will not employ contractors for more than 1 year.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”
