Students are one group of people that will be particularly badly affected.

One of the changes likely to have a significant impact on the working conditions and pay of students is the extension of the 90-day ‘fire-at-will’ legislation to cover all workplaces. That will mean any employee in their first 90 days of employment can be fired without reason, or for a bad reason.
