If you have been unable to agree information and consultation agreements with your employer, the ‘standard provisions’ apply. These are laid down in the Regulations and require the employer to inform and consult employees; the employer is also required to arrange the election of information and consultation representatives.
If you are an employee or employees’ representative there are 2 complaints you can make:
You should make your application to the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) under Regulations 19(2) or 19(4) of the Information and Consultation Regulations 2004.
If you are an employer, the CAC will ask you to respond to any complaint made by an employee or employees’ representative.
