Use this model ballot form in the election of employee information and consultation representatives, as part of a TUPE transfer.

Why this form is necessary

A TUPE employee representatives ballot form is a document used to facilitate the process of electing employee representatives in the context of a Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) transfer.

When a TUPE transfer occurs, it is required by law that the outgoing employer informs and consults with employee representatives about the transfer and its implications for the affected employees. The TUPE employee representatives are elected by the affected employees and act as a liaison between them and the employer during the consultation process.

The TUPE employee representatives ballot form is used to enable the affected employees to vote for the individuals who will represent them during the consultation process. The form typically includes information about the election process, the candidates standing for election, and instructions on how to vote.

The form must be completed in accordance with the TUPE regulations and the outcome of the ballot must be reported to the outgoing employer, who will then communicate the results to the affected employees.

  • Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992: This legislation provides protections for employees who wish to join a trade union or engage in collective bargaining. It also sets out the process for appointing employee representatives for the purpose of consulting with the employer during a TUPE transfer. It is important to consider this legislation when creating a ballot form to ensure that the process for appointing employee representatives is fair and transparent.

  • Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE): This legislation requires that employers inform and consult with employee representatives before a TUPE transfer takes place. It is important to consider this legislation when creating a ballot form to ensure that the employee representatives are appointed in a timely manner and have sufficient time to consult with their colleagues before the transfer takes place.

  • Employment Rights Act 1996: This legislation sets out the rights of employees to be consulted in certain situations, including TUPE transfers. It is important to consider this legislation when creating a ballot form to ensure that the consultation process is fair and transparent, and that all employees have an opportunity to express their views.

  • Data Protection Act 2018: This legislation sets out the rules for handling personal data. It is important to consider this legislation when creating a ballot form to ensure that the personal data of employees is handled in a lawful and transparent manner, and that employees are made aware of how their data will be used.
