Draconian Labour Laws one goose step closer
The despicable blitzkrieg against workers just went up a level with a massive raft of labour law changes aimed at screwing workers for the benefit of the bosses about to be pushed through Parliament.
The 90 day right to sack will be extended even though the Department of Labour warned it will not lift employment rates the way National pretend they will, even though it was against National's own Labour Minister and was really the idea of ACT and despite the fact it will hurt women more.
These new anti-worker laws will also steal a weeks worth of holiday and steal public holidays from workers by removing the words "voluntary" and "informed" from the clause relating to cashing in a weeks holiday and transferring public holidays.
Bossman can now demand a Doctors certificate minus any "reasonable" grounds.
Most disturbingly John Key has changed the wording regarding unjustifiable dismissal from "would" to "could" in terms of what bossman can do.
The pretense that this Government is moderate and inclusive is over.
