Justice in Dismissal

Hugh Collins

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses an examination of the available evidence about the social and economic effects of the dismissal law. A number of difficulties arise when assessing the evidence about the effects of the legislation. One of these is that what the law requires of the employers (in theory) may be a long way from what they do in practice in response to the law of unfair dismissal. The evidence that is presented in this chapter is examined under a number of headings in order to determine whether in fact, if not in law, the legislation on unfair dismissal has achieved any or all of its aims.

Keywords:   evidence, social effects, economic effects, legislation, practice, employers, unfair dismissal, aims
