TUPE - A practical guide to business transfers


This full day event will provide a valuable and practical overview of the TUPE process and draws upon current employment law and related Acas guidance on business transfers.

Business need

TUPE is often seen as complex and can be a major headache for employers. It is also a scary and confusing prospect for employees, so getting the process right is important in order to minimise the stress during this most difficult and testing area of business activity.

The course includes an overview of the TUPE process from start to finish and covers best practice when preparing for a TUPE transfer. It also explains employee rights when the work they do transfers to a new employer.

This training will provide you with clear and practical guidance on the TUPE Regulations and also practical tips on the process of conducting a transfer.

This course is not a substitute for those requiring in-depth legal consultation.

The course will cover :
