Applied TUPE

An essential one-day seminar from PersonnelToday.com and IRS shows HR
practitioners and line managers how to deal with the UK Transfer of
Undertakings Regulations (TUPE)

Applied
TUPE

The
UK Transfer of Undertakings Regulations (TUPE) have been with us for more than
20 years but their implications are rarely fully understood.

All
those advising on employment issues, especially business sales, outsourcing or
contracting, need to have a good grasp of TUPE and how it affects transactions.

This
seminar explains when TUPE applies, how we identify who is affected, who
transfers, the special rules regarding redundancies, dismissals and changing
employment terms, and also looks at the role of unions. It will outline the
Government’s proposed changes to TUPE due this year.
