A reduction to the collective redundancy consultation period

Under the Trade Union & Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, if an employer proposes to terminate as redundant 100 or more employees at one establishment within a 90 day period, that employer is required to consult collectively or with an appropriate representative of the affected employees. Currently this consultation must begin at least 90 days before the first dismissal takes place.
 
From April 2013, the Government has confirmed that the 90 days consultation period will reduce to 45 days.
 
The key aims for this reduction is to:
  • Improve the quality of the consultation process.
  • Ensure that employers can restructure efficiently in order to respond to changing market conditions.
  • Balance the interests of redundant employees with those who stay on.
 
This reduction has a significant effect on resource planning making managing the process to inform and consult effectively more important than ever before.
 
If you are facing a redundancy situation and need expert assistance please give HarriesHR a call to see how we can help.
