European Court of Justice: ECJ rules on collective redundancies

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Case C-188/03: Irmtraud Junk v Wolfgang Kühnel, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that a collective redundancy takes place at the point at which the notice to terminate an employment contract is issued, rather than when the employment contract terminates on expiry of the notice period. Employers must therefore consult on and notify employees of redundancies before issuing redundancy notices.
