Contracts of Employment/Payroll Arrangements

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) became the Employer for the Dental Specialty Trainees in Scotland from Wednesday 1st December 2021. 

The move from your existing NHS Employer to NES was facilitated in accordance with the TUPE Regulations 2006. This allowed for the protection of employees in the event of a change in the employer, ensuring that your rights are safeguarded. This meant that your contract of employment was taken up by NES and transferred on your current terms and conditions of employment, including your continuity of employment on 1st   December 2021. As a result of this there was no requirement for NES to issue a new Contract of Employment. 

All of your previous pre-employment checks and associated documents are saved on TURAS People and any additional information required for December 2021 will be carried out by your Placement Board. 

There was no requirement for a further Staff Engagement Form to be completed as all payroll related information was transferred on your behalf by the payroll teams. 

Arrangements were made to place you on NES payroll with effect from the 1st December 2021.  

Your pension arrangements were unaffected by this transfer.
