Issues covered:

In our January TUPE update we discuss a case from the European Court on the subject of service provision change. This arose from the taking back by a client of a service previously outsourced in order for the client to carry out the service on its own behalf for the future.

We illustrate the difference between the rules in the EU Acquired Rights Directive and the Service Provision Change (Protection of Employment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2006. Secondly, we move to the treatment of service provision change in Great Britain and Northern Ireland and examine the short term contract exception to the service provision change rules.
