A collective redundancy means the dismissal for redundancy reasons over any period of 30 consecutive days of at least:
- five persons in an establishment normally employing more than 20 and less than 50 Employees.
- ten persons in an establishment normally employing at least 50 but less than 100 Employees.
- ten per cent of the number of Employees in an establishment normally employing at least 100 but less than 300 Employees.
- thirty persons in an establishment normally employing 300 or more Employees.
The Act also provides that an Employer contemplating collective redundancies must, with a view to reaching an agreement, similarly consult the representatives of the Employees affected not later than 30 days before the first dismissal takes effect.
