TUPE simplified


Overview

Join Acas and Darwin Gray solicitors as we simplify TUPE; one of the most complex areas of employment legislation. 

We will explore both the TUPE process and regulations, helping you understand the legislation and avoid unnecessary pitfalls. 

Business Need

Business transfers, outsourcing, insourcing or privatisation – whatever the context, TUPE transfers can be one of the most testing, confusing and stressful areas for employers and employees.
 
Understanding the regulations and good practice will help you better manage the process, minimising the stress and disruption it can cause for those involved.

This conference will provide an overview of the law surrounding TUPE. It will answer many of the questions that arise when faced with a transfer, helping you to manage and communicate the process with more certainty. We will clarify the TUPE regulations, your responsibilities as an employer and provide examples of common mistakes made during TUPE transfers.
