NWELG: TUPE in Practice
Date: 6th March 2018
Time: 08:30 – 11:00
Location: Slater & Gordon, Manchester
Free event

Service provision change (“SPC”) under regulation 3(1)(b) dominates the recentcaselaw. However, it is easy to forget that SPC can also amount to a traditional transfer of an undertaking, and there are some cases where employees are only protected under the traditional model of transfer of undertakings (regulation 3(1)(a)) as opposed to SPC.

This seminar provides a refresher on the main principles and cases concerning regulation 3(1)(a), together with a practical application of key TUPE concepts in an interactive and informative workshop.

Programme

09:00 – 09:45 Traditional Transfers of Undertakings under Regulation 3(1)(a) TUPE 2006 – an overview and refresher. Presented by Mugni Islam-Choudhury

09.45 – 10.00 Morning break

10:00 – 11:00 Workshop. Presented by  Helen Barney and Mugni Islam-Choudhury
