Two tier code abolished from December 2010

From 13 December 2010, the 'two tier code' has been withdrawn. The code ensured that when services were contracted out from public bodies, the staff in organisations working alongside ex-public sector workers were treated no less favourably.

This change means that for many third sector organisations, contracting with public sector bodies will be more affordable. Though note that the TUPE regulations, protecting those staff who are moved from one organisation to another, will still apply.
