We are consulting on the detail of how the proposed financial penalties regime will operate and we welcome views from trade unions, employer associations and other interested organisations and individuals. Specifically, we are seeking views on whether:
the proposed approach to set the level of financial penalty by type of obligation breached is appropriate
the maximum levels by type of obligation breached are appropriate; and
the proposal to reduce the penalty maxima by 50% for unions and employer associations whose membership size is less than 100,000 is appropriate.
Why We Are Consulting
The Government is consulting on the detail of our proposed implementation of the financial penalties regime under the Trade Union Act. We welcome views from unions, employer associations, and other interested organisations and individuals on our proposals.
