This Committee submits a motivated proposal to the Ministry which shall then issue a final decision on the employer's request (see art. 225 (a), (b) LL).
    As such, there is no formal consultation process with the workers' representatives on the decision to close down or downsize the firm.
    However, art. 227 LL provides that if a final decision is issued in favour of the employer's request and no objective criteria are prescribed in the collective labour agreement or the internal regulations for selecting the workers who shall be dismissed, the employer shall undertake consultation on the selection criteria with the representative of the trade union concerned.
