Description

In this session, Ruth George will give us a practical HR guide to the TUPE minefield.

Nearly a million workers each year are affected by TUPE - the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, through the sale of their businesses to a new owner, or the services they provide being contracted out. Where TUPE applies, e.g. via outsourcing, a change of contractor or insourcing, workers are protected.

But how should HR professionals approach the TUPE obstacle course? What are the key pitfalls? How can HR ensure TUPE transfers run smoothly? Over the course of the session, Ruth will be running through the practical implications of TUPE on employers and affected employees. Looking at the key milestones involved in a transfer of service both during and following a transfer, she will also explore the communication, consultation and commercial implications. The session will provide you with an overview of how to manage a TUPE project by identifying key milestones, risks and stakeholders.

Whether you are about to embark on your first TUPE, looking to brush up your TUPE expertise, or just curious about what all the fuss is about, this session is for you. Using recent examples, Ruth will share her experiences and the tools and techniques to sensitively manage a TUPE change within your organisation.
