This page provides guidance for when you are proposing fewer than 20 redundancies at the same establishment within a 90 day period and are not therefore under a statutory duty to carry out collective consultation. Although the law does not require it, we recommend that you set up a group consultation process in these circumstances. This page explains why this is, and what a group consultation process might look like.
It is not always obvious if the numbers of proposed redundancies has reached the threshold of 20 in 90 days. For guidance when you are unsure, see How to - decide when the statutory collective consultation duty applies and which employees are covered.
