If being able to get rid of poor staff without any fear of legal action is a massive boost for growth, why is being able to get rid of good staff without any fear of legal action merely a "sad" downside? 

Surely the latter could have quite serious consequences for productivity and lost skills not just for the companies in question but also the wider economy as a sacked worker is less likely to find appropriate employment.  Maybe Beecroft has convincing evidence in the rest of his report (only part of the Executive Summary has been leaked) that worthy dismissal decisions will massively outweigh unworthy ones but if he hasn't, this could all be pretty thin and impressionistic. I would do my best to await the full report with an open mind but Vince Cable has just said it will never see the light of day if he has anything to do with it.
