"As revealed a fortnight ago, IBM told staffers in both business units to form Employee Consultation Committees (ECC)"
Am I reading correctly that people are being told to form their own committees to consult on their own redundancies?
Surely its the job of HR to form the committee to answer the employee's questions?
Also, if employee's are being told to do their own consultations, if they don't form a committee at all does that mean that IBM would then be in contravention of employment law if they made someone redundant who did not have a chance to consult?
I'm geniunely interested to know as when it happened to us it was HR who had to go around and have individual consultations with everyone at risk.
