Collective Redundancies (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006 come into force

Implementation date: 8 October 2006

The Regulations amend the Employment Rights (Northern Ireland) Order  1996 to reflect the European Court of Justice's decision in Junk v Kühnel [2005] IRLR 310 ECJ, which clarified employers' duties to inform and consult employees before undertaking collective redundancies under the Collective Redundancies Directive. The Regulations can be viewed on the HMSO website.
