Information and consultation Regulations extended to smaller companies
The rules give employees the right to know about any issue that may affect their jobs, be consulted and receive regular updates on how the business is doing. From 6th April 2008, the regulations have been widened to include all organisations with 50 or more employees.

It's important to establish a system by which your organisation can adhere to these rules as the law can be triggered if at least 10% (minimum of 15 employees) of your workforce request it. Failure to implement could mean a standard system will be put in place as defined in the legislation.

The standard provisions may not suit your business needs, whereas a negotiated agreement can be tailored to the needs of the organisation as well as the employees. You should therefore consider whether it would be beneficial to establish a staff consultative forum voluntarily before a formal request is made.
