TUPE challenge to government

I was instructed by 120 legal aid firms in a joint TUPE challenge of the previous government’s plans to introduce ‘best value tendering’ by way of a TUPE challenge: would the firms who succeeded in the tendering process inherit staff under TUPE?

I managed to bring everyone together and presented the government with a unified request for an indemnity against the likely consequences of TUPE. The initiative disappeared shortly afterwards. I would like to think our letter had an impact on that decision.

“We would have been totally lost without you- thanks so much!”- Allan Maidment (on behalf of the group)
