Consultation on implementation of European Works Council Directive

Close date: 12 February 2010

The Government consults on its proposals to implement the recast European Works Council Directive (2009/38/EC), including draft Regulations. Views are sought on exempted European Works Council (EWC) agreements; EWC agreements that are adapted following company restructuring; definitions of "information" and "consultation"; and how to ensure that EWCs are provided with the "means required" to apply their rights under the Directive. The Regulations will not come into force until 5 June 2011.
