Are you an employer who:-
- has furloughed staff; and
- do you envisage that you may have to make redundancies if the Government Job Retention Scheme is not extended beyond 31 May 2020; and
- have 100 or more staff at one establishment who may be affected?
If the above applies to you, then some urgent consideration will need to be given to whether or not you should file an HR1 form and commence collective consultation because 17 April is 45 days (the minimum period of consultation for 100 or more staff) before 31 May 2020. MORE.
