If your company employs more than 50 people in an EU country (or more than 20 if it is a branch of a larger business), you are legally obliged to:
- inform your staff about recent and future developments in company activities and economic situation
- inform and consult staff about the current situation and probable development of employment
- inform and consult staff about possible substantial changes to the way work is organised or contractual relations are managed
You must also make sure you give the information in good time so that employee representatives have enough time to officially consult you on the related issues.
It is prohibited for employee representatives (or any experts assisting them) to disclose to staff or third parties information you give them in confidence.
