UK - A majority of workers fear they will lose their pensions rights if their job is outsourced, a survey from Cap Gemini Ernst & Young shows.
The consulting firm’s study also found that few workers understood their rights under TUPE – legislation designed to protect transferred employees’ rights and is set to be expanded to cover private sector pensions under government proposals set out last week.
Cap Gemini said two-thirds of respondents thought that outsourcing would lead to reduced job security, 52% thought they would lose their pensions rights and 32% felt that it would lead to lower pay.
The sample was drawn from UK companies and organisations with over 250 employees.
