TUPE: principles and practice

Who should attend

This course explains the key stages of a TUPE transfer including planning and election of employee reps, using examples. We focus on commercial realities and solutions, reflecting the need to balance business requirements with legal compliance.

Synopsis

Lawyers find TUPE laws complex and difficult, so it is not surprising that HR professionals do too. We consider the perspective of the outgoing employer in a TUPE transfer, the incoming employer, affected employees and the role of HR throughout.
