Protective Award for failure to provide information
In UNISON v London Borough of Barnet and another the Tribunal made a protective award of 60 days pay in respect of redundant employees and awards of 40 and 50 days pay in respect of employees affected by TUPE transfers. Both were because of the employer’s failure to provide the recognised trade union with sufficient information on agency workers for the purpose of consulting over both the proposed redundancies and two separate TUPE transfers.
The Tribunal took into account that the information was readily available, was central to the consultation process, and had been repeatedly requested by the Union.
