A slightly belated update to the amended regulations. With effect from the 20 April 2014 a new Regulation 16A was added by Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (Consequential Amendments) (Employment) (No. 2) Order 2014, Reg 2(4). This deals with compulsory ACAS conciliation in cases to which the TUPE Regulations apply.
The addition has effect subject to transitional provision specified Reg 3 of the Order which provides:
“Regulation 2 has effect in any case where the worker concerned complies with the requirement in subsection (1) of section 18A of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996 on or after 20th April 2014.”
