(b)for the transfer to the Children’s Commissioner of the rights, powers, duties and liabilities of the Office under or in connection with the contract of employment of the member of staff;

(c)for anything done (or having effect as if done) before that transfer by or in relation to the Office in respect of such a contract or the member of staff to be treated as having been done by or in relation to the Children’s Commissioner.

(3)A staff transfer scheme may provide for a period before a person became a member of the Children’s Commissioner’s staff to count as a period during which he or she was a member of the Commissioner’s staff (and for the operation of the scheme not to be treated as having interrupted the continuity of that period).

(4)A staff transfer scheme may provide for a person who would be treated (by an Act or otherwise) as being dismissed by the operation of the scheme not to be so treated.

(5)A staff transfer scheme may provide for a person who is a member of staff of the Office not to become a member of the Children’s Commissioner’s staff if the person gives notice objecting to the operation of the scheme in relation to him or her.

(d)paragraph 2(2)(b) (to the extent that anything has been done by or in relation to the Chief Inspector in respect of any property, rights or liabilities transferred by a property transfer scheme).

Continuity

4A transfer by virtue of a staff transfer scheme or a property transfer scheme does not affect the validity of anything done by or in relation to the Office or the Chief Inspector before the transfer takes effect.

Supplementary provisions

5A staff transfer scheme or a property transfer scheme may include supplementary, incidental, transitional and consequential provision.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
