Restructures, redundancies & TUPE

We are seeing several discernible trends which separately give rise to an increased number of restructuring and redundancies.

With the economy growing strongly in the region there are a number of corporate mergers and acquisitions, with subsequent restructuring of the workforce. Equally some employers are focusing on staying competitive by making the most out of existing staff, and this can often involve changes to roles and responsibilities, which have to be consulted upon.

In the not for profit sector, the zeitgeist is that commissioning bodies are seeking to let ever larger contracts to a single provider which frequently results in smaller providers losing the work but needing to consider whether TUPE applies. This autumn’s seminar will focus on how to restructure your workforce and understand the impact of TUPE.

We will cover issues such as:

• Pre-planning the business case
• Contract changes
• TUPE after a merger/loss of a contract
• Key risks and how to avoid them
• Consultation, selection and process
• Difficult employees
