TUPE rules relaxed for small employers

Small employers with less than 10 employees will be pleased to learn of the relaxation of obligations to inform and consult in respect of transfers taking place on or after 31 July 2014. These employers can now consult the employees direct provided there are no employee representatives already appointed. Previously employee representatives needed to be appointed. Now it will be up to an employer to prove that the exemption applies where there is a dispute.

This change is likely to be welcomed with open arms by employers.
