European Works Councils (EWCs)

The EU’s European Works Council Directive requires large multinational companies, when requested, to set up a permanent European Works Council composed of employee representatives, and then to inform and consult it regularly on “transnational issues”. See EWCs in depth for more information.

European Employers Group provides unrivalled expertise and knowledge on all aspects of European Works Councils, the legislation throughout Europe, what other companies with EWCs are doing, and the implications of Brexit. We also provide training for employee representatives and management. Please contact us if you would like advice or assistance.

Information and Consultation of Employees (ICE) Regulations

The ICE Regulations apply to all employers with 50 or more employees in the UK, requiring them to set up permanent structures for consulting with employees in the UK at the request of employees. It is still possible for most companies to set up voluntary consultation arrangements that are exempt from the Regulations. See ICE Regulations in depth for more information.

We provide expert advice on how to comply with the Regulations and how to set up consultation arrangements suited to your company. We also provide training to employee representatives and management. Please contact us if you would like advice or assistance.
