Alexander Ehmann: Our evidence showed that on both settlement agreements and compensated no-fault dismissal it would result in an increase of employers’ propensity to performance-manage individuals out of their business. The net contribution, however, as I said earlier, is to increase the overall number of staff within businesses. There would be a change—there would be employees let go—but all of our evidence demonstrates that individuals would be replaced in those roles and that businesses would be more minded to take on more. We see no evidence whatever for a desire to press down on overall headcount as a result of employment law changes.
