IN BRIEF: Gloomy times ahead on jobs front.

NEXT year could be the worst for jobs in two decades, with 600,000 workers facing redundancy and others having their pay frozen, a gloomy new report has predicted.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development warned when the recession ends, more than a million jobs could have been lost in the UK.

The institute forecast that unemployment will stop short of 3m, but it warned that the period between New Year and Easter will be the worst for redundancies since 1991.
