The Government has published a consultation proposing significant reforms to the collective redundancy consultation regime. Against a background of concern that the current rules do not fit the economic climate, it criticises what it sees as an arbitrary trigger of 90 days’ consultation where 100 or more redundancies are contemplated, proposing in its place a reduced period of 30 or 45 days. A new Code of Practice is also proposed which would aim to improve the quality and effectiveness of the consultation process.
