When there is an issue in the workplace, employers and employees have a number of options and steps they can take to resolve it, ranging from informal conversations to formal processes and procedures.
These Regulations were laid before Parliament on 6/4/10 and come into operation on 5/6/11 and essentially they amend the 1999 Regulations which made provision for the establishment of European Works Councils for organisations that met the requisite criteria in terms of size and presence for Community-scale undertakings.
