Workers of companies facing closure: memorandum of understanding

Memorandum of understanding between Jobcentre Plus, R3 and the Insolvency Service to support workers of companies facing closure.



On 18 May 2011, the Business and Employment ministers met with the Insolvency Service, Jobcentre Plus and the insolvency trade body R3 to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at the House of Commons. The MoU renews the partnership to support workers of companies facing closure.

The agreement confirmed a continued commitment from each organisation to ensure that when redundancies are made as a result of an employer’s insolvency, the agencies will work in partnership to provide the best service and advice possible to the ex-workers facing redundancy.
