Many employers find the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) impenetrable. In a new XpertHR webinar, in association with Personnel Today, senior employment lawyer Laurie Anstis takes the confusion out of TUPE and tackles some of the key areas where employers can struggle.

Does TUPE even apply to the situation you’re dealing with? What are the rules regarding dismissal in relation to the TUPE transfer? And what is the impact on the terms and conditions of existing employees?

The webinar explains:

  • where TUPE applies – the impact for an employer, particularly in terms of information and consultation obligations that are triggered;
  • the effect of a TUPE transfer on contracts of employment and, specifically, an employer’s ability to lawfully change an employee’s contract or harmonise the terms and condition of incoming employees with those of existing employees; and
  • the effect of a TUPE transfer on an employer’s ability to dismiss an employee.
