Dear Colleagues

Workers’ statutory rights in the event of an employer being declared insolvent

Further to the previous Circular No. NP/0138/16 of 6th May 2016, following Offshore Diving Industry Agreement signatory Harkand Group going into administration the union’s legal department has produced a short summary of workers’ rights in these circumstances.

The document provides a basic outline of statutory rights and entitlements of staff, should the employer be declared insolvent. It also covers the increasingly important issue of employment status in these circumstances. A copy of the guidance note is attached.

I would be grateful if you could bring the content of this circular to the attention of members in your Branch.

Yours sincerely
