Scrap unfair dismissal say SMEs

Two thirds of small firms want unfair dismissal rules to be scrapped, according to a survey out today from the London Entrepreneurial Exchange (LEE). Seven out of 10 firms will be hiring over the next six months, the study claims. More than half of those surveyed said they were concerned about their business outlook after the proposed euro bailout plan, although 61 per cent did not want a referendum on UK membership of the EU.
