The first sample is suitable for an information and consultation agreement where a direct system of representation will be used. A direct system of representation is one in which information and consultation will take place between the employer and all employees, ie, with no employee forum or employee representatives. This is followed by a sample communications charter.
The second sample is for an information and consultation agreement where an indirect system of representation, involving an employee forum and employee representatives, is the option chosen.
Separate checklists for organisations introducing teamworking and measures to boost employee engagement are also included.
