Changes to Information and Consultation

From the 6th April, the threshold for requesting information about decisions being made in the business, as well as being consulted prior to changes in the workplace, has decreased from 10% to 2%.

All employers must inform and consult their employees on:

• selling the business or buying a new one
• making 20 or more redundancies in a 90-day period
• health and safety issues

If you have more than 50 employees, you may also have to:

• consult employees on changes to your pension scheme
• share other business information with your workforce if they request an information and consultation agreement

You must legally make a formal agreement about what business information you will share with your employees and when you will consult them if all of the following apply:

• you have more than 50 employees
• your employees make a formal information and consultation agreement request
• 15 employees or 2% of your total workforce (whichever number is greater) make the request

If you have less than 50 employees (or not enough of your employees make a request) it’s up to you if you want to make an information and consultation agreement.
