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.
