The Government has announced its intention to lift the shielding requirement for extremely vulnerable people. Katherine Sinclair and Libby Hubbard discuss...
Changes are likely to be implemented by 6 April 2013, as follows:
- The Government will remove the 90 day minimum period for consulting with employees of 100 or more; and replace it with a 45 day minimum period. This change and its impact will be reviewed once it has had time to take effect;
- The Government has asked ACAS to prepare new non-statutory guidance on collective redundancy consultations. This will have the aim of addressing the principles and behaviours of good quality consultation, focusing on dealing effectively with the most contentious issues. The guidance will allow businesses the flexibility they need to tailor the consultation process appropriately for them. It will also give further guidance as to what amounts to an establishment; and
- The Government will legislate to make clear that fixed term contracts which have reached the end of the agreed termination point are excluded from obligations for collective redundancies consultation.
