Collective redundancy consultation: "Establishment" means "local employment unit", not "undertaking"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Lyttle and others v Bluebird UK Bidco 2 Ltd [2015] IRLR 577 ECJ, the ECJ held that the Collective Redundancies Directive must be interpreted as permitting national legislation that imposes an obligation of information and consultation only where at least 20 employees in a local employment unit are to be dismissed, rather than where an aggregate of 20 employees across the whole undertaking are to be dismissed.
