No specific national debate on transposition.

There was no specific national debate on the transposition of the directive into national law, although there has been more general interest in the information and consultation rights workers in Cyprus have gained as a result of the country joining the EU in May 2004. As with other legislation on employment issues, the draft text proposed by the government was initially discussed in the Tripartite Advisory Committee, which includes representatives of both unions and employers. There is no legal basis for employee board-level representation in Cyprus, although sometimes trade unionists are appointed to the boards of state-owned and partially state-owned companies.
