The DTI is poised to announce newmeasures to curb frivolous and vexatious claims to employment tribunals.An announcement by Trade andIndustry Secretary Stephen Byers is expected before Christmas, but could bemade as early as this week.Byers is expected to extendsignificantly the rarely-used powers available to tribunals to deal withtime-wasters. These include requesting a deposit if an employee insists ontaking a weak claim to a full tribunal, or awarding costs against them if apanel finds in the employer’s favour.The measures are expected to bebroadly in line with recommendations made by the CBI earlier this year. Theyare also likely to address a number of concerns expressed by Personnel Todayreaders (Letters, 11 and 19 July).Dominic Johnson, head of employeerelations at the CBI, said, “Stephen Byers strongly hinted at the CBIconference that the Government would be taking action. We hope that the detailof the DTI’s proposals reflects the business concerns that we put to StephenByers.”Birmingham Chamber of Commerce andIndustry has called for an increase in the maximum level of costs that can beawarded against an applicant from £500 to £5,000.

Arsenal Extend Mertesacker’s Contract

first_imgArsenal have triggered an option to extend Per Mertesacker’s contract despite the centre back not playing a single game for the club so far this season due to a knee problem, manager Arsene Wenger said yesterday.The 32-year-old former German international underwent surgery after picking up the injury in a pre-season friendly in July.“He’s back in training, not with the squad, but he’s two weeks away now,” Wenger told a news conference yesterday. “He has an option that we have taken. There was no negotiation, just an option that we have taken.” Arsenal, which climbed above Manchester City into fourth place in the Premier League table after beating Swansea City 4-0 last weekend, host 10th-placed Burnley on Sunday, with Wenger’s team boosted by the return of a trio of absentees.Defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin and full backs Hector Bellerin and Kieran Gibbs are all back training with the squad ahead of the Burnley game, although Theo Walcott is still out.Wenger also offered positive news on striker Olivier Giroud, who opened the scoring against Swansea, but limped off an hour into the game.“Giroud is back in training since yesterday,” Wenger said. “With the number of games we have it’s important that we have all our experienced players back and that everybody is focused to do well.“We’re going through a moment of truth now, January until May is five months to go. You want ideally all your players with big experience back in your squad.”With striker Danny Welbeck also back in the team after a long-term injury, Wenger said he did not expect to seek reinforcements in January, and ruled out a move for unsettled West Ham United creative midfielder Dimitri Payet.Payet has been linked with a move back to his former club Olympique de Marseille, and Wenger said he was not interested in signing the France international.“I expect it to be a very quiet period,” he added. “We are very strong. We have many, many players who can come in. I rate Payet but I don’t need Payet because we have so many creative players. We have many players who can play in this position.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
