when establishing the number of employees the employer was proposing to dismiss
for redundancy for the purposes of the statutory consultation requirements.
the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, section 188, if
an employer is proposing to dismiss as redundant 20 or more employees at one
establishment within a 90-day period or less it must consult appropriate
representatives of the affected employees.
