Identify the appropriate representatives for informing and consulting in relation to a TUPE transfer

Key points

  • Where the employer is party to a TUPE transfer, it is under a duty to inform and, where relevant, consult with the "appropriate representatives" of the affected employees.
  • Who the appropriate representatives are will depend on whether or not the employer recognises a trade union and, if it does not, whether or not it has any existing arrangements for consulting with staff.
