EMPLOYMENT AND PENSIONS

Plymouth Community Homes

In addition to providing general employment support and representation in relation to regular employment tribunal claims, we have been also been representing Plymouth Community Homes in relation to a number of ongoing equal pay claims regarding employees who had transferred over from Plymouth City Council.

We have further provided strategic support and advice relating to a number of deferred TUPE situations, whereas service level agreements with Plymouth City Council come to an end (PCH having originally come out of PCC), TUPE transfers are occurring. This involved revisiting the agreement that had been made between the parties at the time of the initial transfer to ensure that it was fit for purpose for the deferred transfers.

As it happened, the agreement over transferring staff required a complete overhaul, which we perfectly placed to do due to a combination of is transactional and outsourcing TUPE expertise, but also because of our valuable TUPE litigation experience.
