You must consult on certain changes
A consultation means that you seek, consider and listen to employees' views before making a decision. You must do this about issues involving:
- Potential redundancies of 20 or more employees (this is called 'collective consultation') - it's good practice to consult staff on any potential redundancies
- Health and safety matters
- Changes to employment contracts
- A business transfer / TUPE
If you have more than 50 employees in your school or trust, you may also need to consult on any changes to your employee pension scheme.
If there are more than 50 employees in your school or trust, they have the right to request a formal agreement to be informed
