We encourage employees to make use of the tools that they have to express their views on directors' pay. Under regulations implementing the information and consultation directive, all employees of organisations with 50 or more staff have the right to request an information and consultation (MX) agreement. The request must be supported by 10% of employees. The employer is then obliged to negotiate with staff to agree on the topics they will be consulted on and how.
The Government are currently consulting on revised remuneration reporting regulations, determining what companies should be required to say in directors' remuneration reports about whether employee views have been sought.
