Duty to inform and consult under TUPE amended for micro-businesses

The Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2014 (SI 2014/16) provide that a micro-business, which is an employer with fewer than 10 employees, may comply with its duty to inform and consult under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/246) by informing and consulting directly with affected employees. This applies where there are no appropriate representatives and the employer has not invited any of the affected employees to elect representatives and is expected to be implemented on 31 July 2014.
