Under the new draft legislation, employers will be required to consult with staff about the issues that affect them, even if there is a pre-existing arrangement in place. The guiding principle behind the Regulations is to create a working environment in which employees are consulted on a timely basis about issues that affect them in the workforce. The regulations are likely to lead to a more in-depth engagement between employers and employees. INSETS: What should employers do now?;Will the regulations threaten my business?.
