    Post-transfer consultation obligations clarified

    In a TUPE situation, a transferee employer is not required to consult with transferred employees post-transfer regarding measures it envisages taking in relation to them (AMICUS v Glasgow City Council & ors).

    For example, if a transferee is proposing redundancies after the transfer it is not under an obligation to consult post-transfer with the appropriate representatives of the transferred employees under the TUPE Regulations. It will however of course still have to comply with any consultation obligations that may be triggered under the collective redundancy provisions of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992.
