TUPE: a practical guide to business transfers (Scotland) - digital event


This digital event will give you a practical, in-depth look at the TUPE process from start to finish, drawing upon current legislation and best practice.

The event will be delivered via Zoom, in two sessions, over two consecutive days. The duration of each session will be 3 hours.

  • Day 1 - 13th of December 2022, 09:30 - 12:30

Business need

Business transfers, outsourcing, privatisation – whatever the context, TUPE transfers can be complex and stressful for both employers and employees.

TUPE Regulations determine employee rights when a business or part of a business is sold or changes hands. Understanding the regulations and good practice will help you better manage the process, avoid unnecessary pitfalls and minimise the stress and disruption it can cause for those involved.

Delivered by zoom, this event will give you a clear explanation of the TUPE Regulations, including employer responsibilities and employee rights. It will also provide you with practical tips on the process of conducting a business transfer, drawing upon current legislation and best practice.

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.
