Collective redundancy law set for U-turn after ruling

The law on collective redundancies looks likely to revert to the more employer-friendly version that existed before 2013, prompting dismay from unions and relief from business. Nils Wahl, advocate-general of the European Court of Justice, said yesterday that he did not agree with an employment appeal tribunal decision two years ago that effectively upended the law governing collective redundancies. If the court follows the advocate-general's advice in its final judgment, the pre-2013 status quo will be restored. The case at the centre of the dispute involves some 1,200 former Woolworths and Ethel Austin employees who lost their jobs when the retailers collapsed in the recession.
