We've used this term “red tape” a bit, and I think it's often thrown around as a pejorative, but of course, there are legitimate requirements. Picking up on the question about a fair wages policy, there's nothing particularly administratively complicated about having to pay a certain wage rate. Some employers might prefer to pay lower wages, but I would challenge presenters to define what we really mean by “red tape” and what should be done about it.
