Labour – The 2015 General Election – The possible changes for Employment Law

In the second instalment of our four part series of analysing the manifestos of the four main political parties, we take a look at Labour who would;

  • “Guarantee a real, paid, starter job to every 18 to 24 year old who has been claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance for more than a year”
  • “Guarantee a real, paid, starter job to every adult aged 25 and over who has been claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance for more than two years”
  • Ensure employees on a zero hours contract have a “regular contract” where they work regular hours during the first twelve weeks of employment
  • Require every large firm that wins a major contract from the Government to provide apprenticeships and training to young people for highly-skilled jobs
  • Introduce “new Technical Degrees” and  “gold standard Technical Baccalaureate for 16 to 19-year-olds”

Next week we’ll look at the Liberal Democrats’ manifesto.
