Government Response to Consultation on TUPE

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has published its response to its call for evidence on the effectiveness of TUPE.

It's very bland - quite extraordinarily so. It identifies the concerns expressed by employers, points out there are arguments against all those concerns, and also points out that the government's freedom to manoeuvre is limited by the Acquired Rights Directive. It concludes by saying the government will think about things, but might simply improve existing guidance rather than amend the Regulations.
