If an independent union has been recognized by the outgoing employer for the transfer of workers, recognition is also passed on to the incoming employer. Since 2014, tariff conditions can be renegotiated after one year, provided that they are generally no less favourable to the employee. Tariff conditions can be renegotiated after one year, provided that the overall contract is no less favourable to the employee. Collective agreements in force at the time of the transfer are also transferred to the new employer. These include terms of employment negotiated through collective bargaining and broader labour relations. For example, the collective dispute procedure, school leave, training of union representatives, negotiated redundancy procedures or workplace safety regimes and flexible work regimes. DUPE regulations preserve the terms and conditions of employees when a company or part of it is transferred to a new employer. Any provision of an agreement (whether an employment contract or not) is not applicable to the extent that it would exclude or limit the rights granted by the regulations. When a contractor is required to take care of staff at the conclusion of the contract, the contractor should also consider what will happen to that staff at the end of the contract. It is impossible to say with certainty whether TUPE will apply to the exit, either for legal reasons or for commercial reasons. For this reason, a contractor would be well advised to negotiate, as part of the agreement, compensation to the client with respect to the cost of any redundancies he might have to make, along with the cost of all the rights that workers can claim in connection with the dismissal or their employment, upon leaving the territory. In certain circumstances, contractual changes made by the new collective agreements agreed by the outgoing employer are not necessary as a result of a transfer. The outgoing employer is required to provide the arriving employer with written information about the transferred workers, including identity, age, employment data, disciplinary and complaint documents, workers` rights and collective agreements, as well as all related rights and commitments that are transferred.
