TAF catering reports

Free Report Available to Download!

TUPE is an important topic:

  1. It is relevant to the foodservices industry because of the frequent service provision changes taking place and

  2. It is a particularly complex area of employment law that relates to the wider issue of managing change within organisations. 

As a consultant, having managed Catering Tenders resulting in change of service and catering provider, I felt it was important to outline the fundamental aspects of current legislation in a concise, easy to read booklet, and how they relate to contract catering establishments, for both operators and client organisations who need to familiarise themselves with the key areas.
