We understand how quickly the deceptively simple principle behind TUPE – the automatic transfer of contracts of employment – can spiral into complexity when it comes to applying it in the real world.
Our specialist employment team has particular expertise in advising public, private and third sector organisations on the TUPE and pensions issues which arise from such arrangements.
We acknowledge how difficult it can be at times to reconcile the strict requirements of TUPE to arrive at a common-sense outcome. We provide pragmatic solutions and work with the wider project team to draw up straightforward documentation with which clients feel comfortable.
We also provide general advice on the TUPE process and on compliance with pension requirements and have specialist knowledge of the LGPS and central government pension schemes.
