Rabal Cañas v Nexea Gestión Documental SA and another [2015] IRLR 577 ECJ

redundancy | collective consultation | at one establishment

In this Spanish reference, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has reiterated that national legislation that uses the "undertaking" and not the "establishment" as the sole reference unit in collective redundancy consultation triggers is contrary to the Collective Redundancies Directive. The ECJ judgment was given on the same day as the judgment in the Northern Irish case Lyttle and others v Bluebird UK Bidco 2 Ltd [2015] IRLR 577 ECJ.
