This webinar will provide comprehensive notes and guidance to employers, and their advisers, on how to make TUPE safer, more cost effective and fairer.

Introduction

With a Conservative election victory and a large budget deficit to address, outsourcing of services is set to grow (in 2013 there up 48,000 TUPE transfers each year). Many clients contract out services such as cleaning, catering, IT support and even solicitors to specialist providers. Where services are insourced, outsourced or transferred between contractors, the TUPE – ‘service provision’ regulations apply and these were widely known as bureaucratic and a disincentive to entering bids. The 2014 service provision changes should make it easier to make changes to the workforce and terms and conditions as well as offering more flexibility.

This webinar will provide comprehensive notes and guidance to employers, and their advisers, on how to make TUPE safer, more cost effective and fairer.
