Collective redundancy

Where an employer is proposing to make redundant 20 or more employees at one establishment within 90 days, it is obliged to consult with appropriate representatives of the affected employees. This is known as “collective consultation”.

The duty to consult collectively on redundancies is in addition to the employer's obligations to consult individually with each of the potentially redundant employees.
