This article summarises the main issues and outcomes in five tribunal cases where it was claimed that the employer failed to consult with trade union or employee representatives when it was proposing to make 20 or more employees redundant. Although the decisions are not binding on other tribunals, they provide useful illustrations of situations that have led to employers facing claims for failing to inform and consult on collective redundancies.
