The collective consultation obligations apply where an employer is proposing to make 20 or more redundancy dismissals at an establishment in any 90-day period. The consultation requirements are strict and there are severe penalties where an employer doesn’t fully comply.
That said, any redundancy policies which have been agreed with recognised trade unions will typically require some collective consultation with the relevant unions at the outset of the process, even where there are fewer than 20 proposed redundancies.
For more information on collective consultation, please refer to our
FAQs on Collective Consultation.
