The status of employment rights on the transfer of an undertaking is an extremely complex area of employment law, fraught with uncertainty and subject to frequent review by the courts.
Proposals have been made by the Government to revise the TUPE Regulations with a view to removing unnecessary gold plating beyond the requirements of EU law and to introduce a lighter touch approach.
The revised Regulations are expected to come into force early in 2014.
TUPE: Law and Practice offers a definitive account of the legal framework of TUPE following the implementation of the new Regulations together with a comprehensive look at the practical application of the law, dealing with such issues as: * when the regulations apply * the effects of a transfer * dismissals and issues arising in connection with a transfer * information and consultation requirements the effect on pension rights.
The text has been fully revised from the first edition.
Extensive appendices include expertly drafted precedents, the full text of all relevant regulations, the European Directive, as well as the Cabinet Office Statement of Practice on Staff Transfers in the Public Sector.
