Friday Podcast: Working Time Directive opt-out, TUPE ruling

Join Personnel Today for the last podcast of the year.
 
HR news and views including:

  • What happens next regarding the Working Time Directive? If the opt-out is scrapped for good, as is looking likely after the European Parliament vote to do so, what will that mean for employers? How long can employees work for on average under the new rules?
  • A new tribunal ruling on TUPE means companies going into administration using a ‘pre-pack agreement’ will not need to follow TUPE rules and can change staff’s terms and conditions. 

Presenter Louisa Peacock is joined by Helen Williams and John Charlton.
 
Edited and produced by Louisa Peacock.
 
The next Personnel Today podcast will go live on podomatic.com on 9 January 2009. Until then, Merry Christmas from the Personnel Today podcast team.
