Employment Law Reforms (2)
On 14 September 2012 the UK Government published the results of two recent calls for evidence (i.e. requests for comments from stakeholders about what to do next). The first covers the proposal that there be compensated no-fault dismissals (which will now be abandoned). The second covers the effectiveness of TUPE 2006 (which the Government is thinking about and will put forward for consultation shortly). The main thrust of the TUPE consultation is to consider whether the “service provision change” element has gone too far and should change. Given that the service provision change aspect seems to have bedded down nicely in quite a short period, this has all of the hallmarks of ongoing confusion after 31 years of confusion since TUPE 1981.
