If you are proposing 20 or more redundancies at one establishment within a 90 day period you must first consult union or employee representatives. This page explains in more detail when the collective redundancy threshold is passed and explains how to comply with your statutory collective consultation duty in practice.

The statutory collective consultation duty applies to dismissals in order to change terms as well as redundancies, although this webpage focuses on how to comply with the duty in a redundancy context.
