EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations concern the treatment of employees of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (“BIS”), as of 1st November 2012, who are to transfer to RCUK Shared Services Centre Limited. The Regulations ensure that a BIS employee who works in Financial Operations in Billingham or Human Resources Operations in Cardiff is to be treated in the same way as an employee to whom the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (“the TUPE Regulations”) apply. However, regulation 4(8) of the TUPE Regulations is not to apply in the case of an employee who works in Human Resources Operations in Cardiff (regulation 4(8) of the TUPE Regulations concerns the treatment of employees who object to the transfer).

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.

(3)

Regulation 4(8) of the TUPE Regulations provides that subject to paragraphs (9) and (11) (of that regulation), where an employee so objects (to the transfer), the relevant transfer shall operate so as to terminate his or her contract of employment with the transferor but he shall not be treated, for any purpose, as having been dismissed by the transferor.
