This course will give members a comprehensive knowledge of the technical and practical aspects of TUPE. There will be a full and clear analysis of the legislation and key cases, together with updates on recent developments in case law and a look ahead to what Brexit might bring. The course will also cover the commercial considerations that apply in a business sale and an outsourcing, including managing TUPE data, identifying commercial issues and negotiating tactics.  

Day one focuses on the academic aspects of TUPE, covering the six core topics:

  • Identifying a relevant transfer
  • Who Transfers?
  • What transfers: The rights and liabilities of employees
  • Employers’ duties to inform and consult
  • Changing legal terms and working conditions
  • Dismissals

Day two builds on the black letter law covered on day one, focussing on the commercial aspects which apply in a business and an outsourcing. Through practical talks and case studies, day two will cover:

  • How employee issues can impact on the wider deal
  • Data gathering and preparation:
    • due diligence
    • data rooms
    • bundling
    • transferee plans
    • handover issues
  • Drafting and negotiating warranties and indemnities (and how non-employment clauses impact on employment issues)
  • Specific employment issues on outsourcing/retendering and insolvencies
