Labour & European Law Review
24 January 2013
The government has published its long awaited consultation on changes to the TUPE regulations 2006. The consultation follows the Call for Evidence last year.
Section 188 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (TULRCA) requires employers to consult collectively when dismissing as redundant 20 or more employees at one “establishment” within 90 days or less.
Tribunals have the power to order re-instatement, re-engagement or an award of compensation if they decide someone has been unfairly dismissed.
