TUPE "Acquired Rights" Directive may merge with Collective Redundancy and Information and Consultation Directive

23 April 2015 #Employment

It may not get much of a mention in the general election debates concerning Europe or employment matters but this month the European Commission launched a public consultation with the workers and employers representatives at EU level in order to obtain their views on the possible consolidation of the EU Directives on collective redundancies (Directive 98/59EC), transfer of undertakings (Directive 2001/23/EC) and information and consultation of workers (Directive 2002/14/EC).

The aim of the consolidation would be to strengthen the coherence and effectiveness of the existing EU legislation on worker information and consultation at national level. Whilst there is no intention to make any fundamental changes, we will be keeping on eye on developments.

The public consultation runs until 30 June 2015.
