Government Response: Call for evidence on collective redundancy consultation for employers facing or nearing insolvency
Detail of feedback received
In March 2015 the previous government launched a call for evidence on Collective Redundancy Consultation for Employers facing Insolvency. The call for evidence, which closed in June 2015, sought to better understand how collective redundancy consultation works in practice when a company is facing or has moved into formal insolvency. Responses were received from a range of interested groups including lawyers, insolvency practitioners and trade unions (see Annex A).
This call for evidence invites stakeholder comments on collective redundancy for employers facing insolvency on:
- their understanding of the current requirements, their purpose and benefits;
- factors that facilitate and/or inhibit effective consultation;
- the role of directors and insolvency practitioners; and
- ensuring timely notification and effective consultation.
