Collective redundancies: Termination by employee after significant changes to essential terms is "redundancy"
- 5 May 2016
In Pujante Rivera v Gestora Clubs Dir, SL and another  IRLR 51 ECJ, the ECJ held that, where an employee resigns in response to the employer making unilateral changes to essential terms in the employment contract for reasons not related to the employee concerned, this will amount to a "redundancy" within the meaning of art.1(1)(a)(i) of the Collective Redundancies Directive (98/59/EC).

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has directed that a constructive dismissal resulting from the employer unilaterally reducing the employee's pay must be treated as a redundancy for the purposes of calculating when an employer's information and consultation obligations apply under the Collective Redundancies Directive.
