Course Description

TUPE - Applied Transfer of Undertakings Course in London

Applied Transfer of Undertakings: TUPE - Open Course in London

The CIPD's Applied Transfer of Undertakings: TUPE course reviews the law on transfers of undertakings, with a highly practical focus on teaching delegates to apply it in their role. Participants will learn best HR practice in TUPE and learn how to formulate a legally compliant strategy for dealing with transfers.  A case study of an organisation undergoing a transfer of the undertaking ensures that participants have a solid understanding of the HR issues and legal framework involved in business transfers.

Applied Transfer of Undertakings: TUPE prepares delegates to promote HR best practice while managing a business transfer and advising on and applying legal issues covered by TUPE.
