News: "A new breed of company in which workers will be forced to lose some maternity rights and all access to unfair dismissal tribunals was unveiled yesterday by George Osborne as he tried to introduce a big deregulation of the labour market through the back door. Osborne revealed that workers could be given shares by their employer worth between 2,000 and 50,000 pounds, and any gains in those shares would be exempt from capital gains tax. In return they would be asked to give up their rights over unfair dismissal, redundancy and requests for flexible working and time off for training. They would also be required to provide twice as much notice of a firm date of return from maternity leave - 16 weeks instead of eight. .. " Patrick Wintour, The Guardian
