  • The rights of and liabilities to the workforce of an insolvent employer:
    • The employment status of the workforce and what differences this might make.
    • The different types of insolvency (administration, voluntary/compulsory liquidation) and the obligations of the employer/the IP towards employees.
  • Consultation under TULRCA and TUPE 2006 in the context of insolvent employers:
    • Who needs to consult? With whom and when? What does “consultation” mean in this context?
    • What are the liabilities associated with inadequate consultation at the various stages and on whom do they fall?
  • General Q&A and panel discussion.
