In this CPDcast, Lydia Christie, a Senior Associate at Howard Kennedy, looks at collective redundancies and the recent decision of the European Court of Justice in the Woolworths case. Lydia focuses on the key issue that this case concerns, namely what an establishment is for the purposes of the requirement to carry out collective consultation about proposed redundancies. Lydia then looks at how the case made its way from the Employment Tribunal to the ECJ before looking at what may – or may not – happen next.
