Call for Evidence: Effectiveness of current TUPE regulations

As a further part of the Employment Law Review, the Government has issued a second call for evidence, with this topic being views on the effectiveness of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 and how they might be improved, if at all.

Whilst the TUPE Regulations 2006 implement a European Directive and provide important protections for both employers and employees, the Government is concerned that some businesses believe they are ‘gold-plated’ and overly bureaucratic. A series of questions in this Call for Evidence have been provided to gauge views on whether this is the case and whether the Regulations should be changed. Should the balance of evidence call for possible changes to the current Regulations there will be a formal consultation on any proposed changes in 2012. Responses must be submitted by 31 January 2012.
