TUPE is arguably one of the most challenging aspects of employment law. Navigating the complexities and risks involved in the TUPE process can often leave people professionals feeling anxious and apprehensive.

This course will equip you with the confidence and knowledge to successfully manage a TUPE transfer, support your employees through the process and ensure legal obligations are met.

Created by UK employment law experts, in conjunction with CIPD, this programme takes a principles-led and evidence-based approach and uses case studies to bring the information to life. You’ll learn the differences between a business transfer and a service transfer and discover the practical steps needed to manage the changes that can occur as a result of a TUPE transfer.

All CIPD Learning courses will automatically provide you with access to the CIPD Learning Hub, our online learning platform, for 24 months.

The hub will house your course content, as well as useful resources, tools, and a community of professionals that you can tap into to support your learning and continual development.
