Employment law manual updated to reflect recent TUPE case law

TUPE can present various challenges for employers, for example where it is unclear whether or not there is a relevant transfer for the TUPE legislation to apply, or whether or not transferring employees' terms and conditions can be varied. To help employers understand this technical area, we have updated the TUPE section of the Employment law manual to include information on three recent cases relating to: the extended definition of a TUPE transfer; the effect of a relevant transfer on contracts of employment; variations to transferring employees' terms and conditions; and the dismissal of transferring employees for economic, technical or organisational (ETO) reasons.

We also provide an update on the recent changes introduced by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) with respect to national minimum wage liabilities in the context of a TUPE transfer.
