The article reports on the hope of many outsourcing firms in Great Britain that the government's review of the Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment (Tupe) and the Fair Deal rules will slash red tape. An announcement was made by employment relations minister Ed Davey about an employment law review that will examine possible reforms to the Tupe regulations. Some people are said to be concerned on how far the government can move on Tupe given that it is underpinned by the European Union (EU) legislation.
