TUPE: a practical guide to business transfers


This full day course provides a practical, in-depth look at the TUPE process from start to finish and draws upon current legislation and best practice when preparing for business transfers.

Business need

Business transfers, outsourcing, being sold off, privatised – whatever you call it, TUPE transfers can be complex and stressful for both employers and employees.

TUPE Regulations give employees certain rights whenever a business or part of a business is sold or changes hands. Being aware of the rights, responsibilities and good practice in regards to TUPE will help you better manage the process and minimise the stress and disruption it can cause for your business and employees.

Delegates attending this event will gain an understanding of the TUPE Regulations as well as employer responsibilities and employee rights. Delegates will also receive practical tips on the process of conducting a business transfer.

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

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
