Call for evidence – Effectiveness of transfer of undertakings (protection of employment - TUPE) regulations 2006

Open date: 23 Nov 2011

Closing date: 31 Jan 2012

Response date: 14 Sep 2012

The call for evidence seeks 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 Regulations 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 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.
