Prestige Set for TUPE Workshop

Prestige Set for TUPE Workshop

As part of our continued investment in training and development, the Prestige team will be attending Let’s Talk TUPE on 4th October.

This practical workshop is designed to get us up to speed on everything related to the current TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations), and the latest amends to the legislation enacted in 2014.

What is TUPE?

TUPE is the legislation designed to protect employees in cases where the business where they work changes hands. Essentially, it ensures that when employees transfer over to the new company, their employment terms and conditions transfer with them, and that continuity of employment is maintained.

It affects both business transfers and service provision changes, such as where a contract ends and is taken over by a new contractor, or moved in-house.

At the workshop, our team will be covering some of the core principles of TUPE, the kinds of transfers it affects, the impact of transfers and the practical considerations. We’ll also be examining some recent case law, to see how employee claims are being managed and dealt with in the courts.

Why it Matters

As a recruitment business – TUPE applies to both our clients and our own business dealings on a very regular basis.

When our clients outsource their recruitment or agency staff employment, or we take over from other employment agencies, the TUPE legislation governs the transfer of employees – which is why it’s so important we do things in the right way.

The legislation is quite complex, and failure to adhere to the TUPE legislation can cause serious employment liabilities, and open up both our business, and our clients’ businesses to potential claims.
