A paper discusses UK employment regulation in comparison to other countries and its effect on the economy and employment levels. The developing views of the OECD on UK employment regulation since 1990 are discussed. The UK has a notably low level of employment regulation compared to other OECD countries, and it is argued that this, combined with an approach to unemployment based around activating people to seek work, has led to higher levels of employment on an international scale, even since the financial crisis.
