Government approves priority drafting of legislation to enhance the protection of employees in collective redundancy

May 25, 2023

The priority drafting of the Plan of Action on Collective Redundancies following Insolvency Bill 2023 includes measures such as ensuring that all collective redundancies are subject to a 30-day notification period before they take effect, including where the employer is insolvent. The bill amends the Companies Act 2014 to improve the quality and circulation of information to workers as creditors in a liquidation.
