Section 3 – Transfer of staff

10.Section 3 provides that the employees of FETA will be transferred from the employment of FETA to the bridge operating company appointed by the Scottish Government to carry out the functions of managing and maintaining the FRB. The Act provides that the TUPE Regulations apply to this transfer.

11.The TUPE regulations contain specific details about the effect of a transfer.
