TUPE

If you work for a business that has been acquired or are part of a team that carries out contract services that have transferred to another contract provider then you may be affected by and have rights under TUPE – The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.

If so, you may need some legal advice in various ways. For example, under TUPE:

  • Your terms and conditions of employment are preserved and protected;
  • You have special protection against unfair dismissal;
  • Employers must inform and consult with affected employees’ representatives about a TUPE transfer.

You may have the right to bring claims before an Employment Tribunal if your terms and conditions are changed on a transfer, if you are dismissed because of a transfer or if there has been a failure to inform and consult regarding the transfer.

TUPE is a complex area but we will clearly advise you on your rights and on any potential claims and remedies you may have with regard to a TUPE situation that affects you.

If necessary we can provide excellent representation for you at an Employment Tribunal. Alternatively, if you are parting company with your employer following or because of a TUPE transfer then we can assist you in negotiating a settlement. These are normally implemented using a Settlement Agreement.

Chancellor announces changes to the Job Support Scheme

The Chancellor has today announced that the Government contribution to employers’ wage costs under the Job Support Scheme (JSS) will be increased. Employers will be expected to pay 5% of the cost of unworked hours instead of the 33% originally announced.

Coronavirus Update - CJRS Bonus - Are you eligible?

Back in the summer the Chancellor announced that employers could receive a one-off payment of £1,000 for every employee who had previously been furloughed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme  provided they remained continuously employed to the end of January 2021.  Businesses will be able to claim the Job Retention Bonus from 15 February 2021 and the Government has stated that further guidance will be provided by the end of January 2021.

Coronavirus Update - Jobs Support Scheme announced

With new government guidance on Covid coming into force today and the current furlough scheme coming to an end next month, as expected, the Chancellor has today announced a new scheme to help businesses.
