Many professional advisers regularly negotiate contracts either on behalf of suppliers or clients which often involve complicated arrangements on the division of employment liabilities between the parties.

Aimed at in-house and private practice lawyers, this new virtual classroom seminar will explore common issues raised when negotiating TUPE clauses.

Presented by expert speaker Sandra Martins, this session offers a practical, commercially focussed approach to negotiating TUPE clauses in outsourcing contracts.

Delegates will be given case studies to work through, both as supplier and as client and the course provides a forum for delegates to share experiences and negotiation tips.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • A reminder of the main provisions of TUPE

  • What information must be disclosed in relation to the transferring employees?
  • What are the parties’ obligations in relation to information and consultation? How should this be covered in the outsourcing contract?
  • Potential employment liabilities:
