The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment Regulations) 2006, referred to as TUPE, is a very complex area of law for both the employers and employees to understand.

In essence, TUPE was introduced to safeguard employee’s jobs should a business or contract be transferred from one company to another. This can occur through a merger, when all or part of a business is sold or when a major contract moves between providers. Our Employment Law team can provide advice on the TUPE regulations in circumstances where a contract is out-sourced, where a subsequent (or second generation) outsourcing of the contract takes place or where a contract is in-sourced. Some transfers will be a business transfer and a service provision change (i.e. a contract outsourcing or in-sourcing).

If you need advice about TUPE transfer our Employment Solicitors offer practical advice and support to employers on a range of matters relating to the Transfer of Undertakings.

TUPE introduced three concepts into UK Employment Law:

  • The automatic transfer principle: where a new company takes over all or part of another company they automatically inherit the existing staff as well. The contracts of the existing staff are retained as welland the new company inherits all rights, liabilities and obligations in relation to them;
  • Protection for employees against dismissal in connection with a TUPE.
  • The obligation to inform and consult with representatives of the affected employees
