On 17 December 2018 the Government published the Good Work Plan, the most substantial reform of employment rules in over twenty years. Alongside the Plan, we laid draft Regulations that lower the threshold required for a valid employee request under the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004. Lowering the threshold from 10% to 2% of employees will ensure employees have a voice in the workplace.

The draft Regulations do not change the number of employers in scope of the Information and Consultation Regulations.
