Firms get power to sack the slackers.

Argh. A lot of the time the people who need protection at work are people who are precariously employed - temps and people who end up working a lot of fixed term contracts. This legislation means that they are even more unlikely to reach a stage where their rights are protected.

Even if this legislation does increase employment (and AFAICT the evidence that it will is very sketchy), the costs to individuals and to society of increased job insecurity have to be taken into account.
