Under Regulation 14 of the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004, negotiating representatives may either be elected in a ballot, or appointed by employees directly. If a ballot is held, the employer must ensure that all employees are entitled to take part in the election and that the employees are all represented during subsequent negotiations. One way of doing this would be to appoint an independent ballot supervisor to oversee the election.
