Nomination notice (collective redundancy)

Written with our partners at:Wilkes logo

What’s a nomination notice (collective redundancy) and when do you need it?

This notice accompanies our template invitation to elect employee representatives in a collective redundancy process.

There is a copy of the nomination notice in the annex to the invitation letter. We created this separate version of the notice so that you can make it generally available to your employees for them to elect their preferred representatives, should they want to do so (they’re not obliged to).

You will only need these templates if you’re making 20 or more employees redundant (called a ‘collective redundancy' situation).

Your employees can use this template to nominate an individual of their choosing to represent the staff of your business during the redundancy process.

Elected staff representatives will represent all of your affected employees in the redundancy consultation. The role of these representatives is to help you to inform and consult with staff about what this redundancy process means for them and for you.

Such representatives have the right to reasonable paid time off in order to carry out the duties of their representative role. However, they are not entitled to any extra pay or benefits.

You can reproduce this document on your own systems if you prefer. Either way, it's designed for you to share with affected staff for them to sign and action.

There are certain legal requirements for the format of this letter, so it’s recommended that you do not reconfigure it materially.
