Small but Perfectly (In)formed (and Consulted)?


It has been nearly three years since the UK Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004 (the 'Regulations') came into effect for organisations with 150 or more employees. The Regulations give employees the right to be informed and consulted about a wide range of key

business developments in the workplace. The Regulations have been phased in, extending in April 2007 to organisations with 100-149 employees and, from 6 April 2008, to organisations with 50-99 employees. Organisations with fewer than 50 employees will not be covered by the Regulations. This article considers the likely impact of the extension of the Regulations to smaller organisations

with 50-99 employees and how such organisations may choose to manage the requirements under the Regulations.
