Unions claims a change in employment law could hit 22 thousand Cornish workers.

The amount of time staff have to wait before they are protected from unfair dismissal is rising to two years.

The south-west TUC is warning of a 'hire and fire' culture.

Spokeswoman Sarah Veale says, "The qualifying period for unfair dismissal has gone up and down and up and down since nineteen eighty-nine. There's no evidence of any causal link between making it easier for employers to get rid of people and their likeliness of taking on new workers.

"They should have the right to go to an employment tribunal and have the case heard and they shouldn't have to have been employed for two years before they get that right. Bosses are just as likely to behave badly between one year and two years, as they are before one year and after two years".
