If you are an employer in the process of a business restructure or are facing potential redundancies, you may need to elect employee representatives.
Where 20 or more redundancies are planned at one establishment within 90 days, the employer has a legal duty, in the absence of a recognised Trade Union, to consult with elected employee representatives. For employees undertaking such a role, this can be a daunting process, and employers who offer representative guidance on the requirements of their role will be better placed to defend themselves against claims that such consultation was not genuine or meaningful (which could potentially lead to protective awards of up to 90 days’ pay for each employee affected by the redundancy process).
Effective employee representation is critical to help both staff and management understand the collective consultation process. EML has produced a practical training resource to assist employers with fulfilling their obligations in this area. The resource consists of a series of fully editable PowerPoint slides, with accompanying speaker notes, designed to be delivered by managers in the form of a 60-90 minute briefing session, either in person or virtually. The slides could also be shared with the employee representatives for their information and reference. We are also able to develop the slides further so they feature your company’s corporate branding and are tailored to your specific requirements. We can also deliver the sessions to the employee representatives ourselves via a video call.
The topics covered include:
- The role of employee representatives
- Disclosure of company information
- What happens in consultation meetings
- Data protection requirements
- Do’s and don’ts for employee representatives
The cost for these materials is £250 + VAT
