Do the obligations under the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004 apply automatically?
What is the extent of the application of the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004?
To which organisations do the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004 apply?
In order to decide if and when the Regulations
apply to an employer, the number of employees must be established. This is
ascertained by determining the number of employees employed in each of the 12
months preceding the month in which an employee request to negotiate an information
and consultation agreement occurs, adding these figures together and dividing
by 12. Where the employer has been in existence for less than 12 months, the
calculation is based on the number of months it has been in existence. For
these purposes only, the employer may if it wishes count a part-time employee
as representing half of a full-time employee for any month in which he or she
worked under a contract for 75 hours or less.
