Advocate General's opinion in Usdaw v Ethel Austin Ltd (in administration); Lyttle and others v Bluebird UK Bidco 2 Ltd; Rabal Cañas v Nexea Gestión Documental SA, Fondo de Garantía Salarial Cases C-80/14, C-182/13 & C-392/13
The Advocate General has taken the view that, when deciding whether or not collective redundancy consultation obligations are triggered, the number of proposed redundancies should be measured in the "local employment unit" to which the potentially redundant employees are assigned to carry out their duties, rather than the whole organisation.
