TUPE Podcast Series: Service Provision Changes - Single specific events or tasks of short duration

Published on: 15/11/2023


In this fourth podcast in our TUPE Podcast Series, Amanda Glover will be looking at the second of the three conditions required for a service provision change transfer.

In our third podcast Service Provision Changes – Organised grouping and principal purpose, we discussed that the service provision change rules in the TUPE regulations are very wide and are meant to cover most situations where activities performed by a service provider on behalf of a client change hands. These will amount to service provision change TUPE transfers. However, the rules will not apply where the client intends that the activities will be carried out by the new service provider in connection with a single specific event or task of short-term duration.

If you have any questions in relation to TUPE, please contact our employment lawyers for advice.
