Update on Carillion

The Official Receiver provides clarification on the current consultation underway with employees of the Carillion group.


A spokesperson for the Official Receiver said:

Contrary to some reports in the media today the Liquidator and the Special Managers of various companies within the Carillion group are not making the entire workforce redundant.

As required by law, we have started our consultation process with the workforce in respect of potential redundancy. This includes consultation with people who are likely to transfer to a new employer, and the Liquidator and Special Managers are in extensive discussions with organisations in relation to such possible transfers.

The company continues to service all its existing facilities management contracts which it has done since the date of liquidation and will continue to do so with the support of its customers, employees and suppliers. Inaccurate and misleading information can only add to the distress of employees already dealing with considerable uncertainty who we continue to value and thank for their continued service, which is ensuring we can provide continuity of service to our customers.
