Urgent TUPE advice for Cambridge Education members
It has come to my attention that due to the short timescale imposed on the TUPE to the new company the usual checking of personal data that always takes place when staff transfer under TUPE is not happening.
What should happen?
In TUPE consultation the current employer will send a copy of the data they are going to send to the new employer to the employee in order that the employee can confirm it is accurate.
What is happening in this TUPE?
I have been advised that staff are not being sent a copy of their personal data to check. They are being advised via an email to check their personal data themselves.
What is UNISON’s advice?
As a UNISON member you are entitled to support and advice.
In this case the advice from UNISON is very clear.
Please check that your personal data which is currently being held by Cambridge Education is accurate.
At some point in the future you may need copies of your personal data which is why it is important that you check your personal data is accurate.
UNISON has had too many experiences of dealing with the consequences of inaccurate personal data especially where there have been multiple employers.
What can you do?
You can request to have all of your personal data sent to you by Cambridge Education via a secure email.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
