An "establishment" for the purposes of the EC Collective Redundancies Directive means the unit to which the workers made redundant are assigned to carry out their duties, rules the ECJ in Rockfon A/S v Specialarbejderforbundet i Danmark [1996] IRLR 168. It is not essential for that unit to be endowed with a management which can independently effect collective redundancies.
