The regulations came into force on 1st October 2002. They were prompted by the need to ensure that British law complies with the EC Fixed-Term Work Directive 1999. The basic idea is that it becomes unlawful to treat a fixed-term employee less favorably than a comparable employee engaged in work, but subject to a defense of objective justification. An employer can objectively justify individual terms which are less favorable if a fixed-term employee's contract taken as a whole is as favorable to him as contracts of permanent employees are to them. • With a fixed-term employee even if the employer is unhappy he can easily fire him or wait for his contract to get over. • Different employees coming over after the end of each contract may bring great ideas to the organization. • The company is safe from paying most of the benefits that permanent employees are usually given. • Having different blood on different occasions is healthy for the organization.

Sample Equality Legislation 5: Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974This place a duty on employers to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety, and welfare at work of all their employees.

There are criminal sanctions for failure to comply with this duty and enforcement is by the Health and Safety Executive and local authorities. • Employees are more motivated as they know that the organization is paying for their health issues. • Employees would be more willing to go for their regular check-ups as no money is being spent from their own pockets. • Having healthy employees is essential and beneficial for the company. • Employees are more relaxed with their future health issues if occur. • Helps to form healthy and efficient workforce.
