Employment Act 1989

Employment Act 1989

a UK statute aimed at deregulating employment and the LABOUR MARKET. It repealed those laws that controlled the working hours of young workers aged between 16 and 18, and repealed many of the laws that controlled the employment of women, e.g. those that prevented women from working in coal mines. Small firms (those employing fewer than 20 workers) were exempted from some requirements imposed by earlier legislation.
