Collective Redundancy Consultation for Employers Facing Insolvency

The Government is seeking views on the way in which consultation with employees where a business is facing insolvency, or has moved into an insolvency process, operates in order to see if outcomes for both employees and employers could be improved.

The consultation invites stakeholders' views and evidence 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.

The consultation closes on 12 June 2015.
