Unfair Dismissal Laws Should Also Apply to Small Business

The ACTU is pushing to have unfair dismal laws apply to all businesses.
At present businesses with fewer than 15 employees are excluded from some of the more onerous and expensive provisions and follow a simpler Small Business Fair Dismissal Code which the ACTU wants abolished.
Business leaders claim the unfair dismissal provisions of the Fair Work Act are holding back productivity and place unreasonable restrictions on employment flexibility.
