The implementation of the EU directive on information and consultation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Employee consultation in the UK, traditionally part of an event-driven approach taken by employers, is about to be challenged by the introduction of the European Directive of 2005, which essentially advocates a process-driven approach to employee consultation. With reference to two recent case studies, this paper considers whether or not the new Directive may in future lead to a reduction in asymmetry of information and power imbalance which currently lies strongly in employers' favour.
