Following the publication by the DTI of the proposals to amend the Transfer of undertakings or the Protection of Employment Regulations 1981, the Special Interest Group took the lead in developing the Institute of Logistics and Transport's views. This was submitted to the DTI as a joint response from the Institute and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply. Some key issues on occupational pension rights are excluded. There is a need to improve guidance on changes to terms and conditions and protection against transfer-related dismissals. The liabilities of employees must be emphasized.
