Government Consultation on TUPE and Pensions

Don't get too excited.  The government has issued a consultation paper seeking views on the proposed The Transfer of Employment (Pension Protection) (Amendment) Regulations 2013.

The draft Regulations clear up an ambiguity in the original rules allowing the employee to choose their own pension contribution levels after a TUPE transfer, and remove a potential loophole in the overlap between TUPE and the new pension auto-enrolment rules.

I'll talk about this at the forthcoming Employment Law MasterClass 2013  - but for no more than 90 seconds.  And that's a promise.
