This interactive one-day course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to recognise when TUPE applies and how you can manage an efficient and effective transfer in a sensitive way. We will start the day by looking at the legal framework and in detail at which employees transfer and what transfers with them. We will consider the practical implications TUPE has on a business during and following a transfer and explore the communication and consultation necessary to ensure a smooth transition.
