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.
If you recognise a trade union in respect of the potentially redundant employee(s), you will need to follow any consultation process which you have agreed with them even if there are fewer than 20 redundancies in total.
For more information on collective consultation, please refer to our FAQs on Collective Consultation.
