Information & consultation
Employers are obliged to inform and consult with employees in certain workplace scenarios. Under the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004, an employer may be obliged to consult with its workforce on key matters that affect employment. If an employer receives a valid request from its employees it is required to enter into negotiations to establish a procedure for informing and consulting them.
Where an employer is making collective redundancies or is party to a TUPE transfer, either as the transferee or the transferor, it is required to inform and consult with “appropriate representatives” of the affected employees.
