TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment rights.

There are two situations when the TUPE regulations may apply; business transfers and service provision transfers.

In business transfers

The TUPE regulations apply if a business or part of a business moves to a new owner or merges with another business to make a brand new employer.

In service provision transfers

The TUPE regulations apply in the following situations:

  • a contractor takes over activities from a client (known as outsourcing).
  • a new contractor takes over activities from another contractor (known as re-tendering).
  • a client takes over activities from a contractor (known as in sourcing).

The most common type of service provision transfer includes office cleaning or catering.

Are you considering buying or merging with another company? Or selling all or part of your business?

More information

The TUPE regulations are complicated and prescriptive and put various obligations on the Transferee employer and Transferor employer. A breach of the regulations could really leave you in hot water and a hefty financial penalty.

What is TUPE for?

In essence, It protects employees and their benefits when their employer changes owing to a business transfer or service provision transfer and it sets out a process of consultation.

We have assisted many client employers with establishing whether TUPE applies to them, taking them through the process and supporting with employee consultations and all associated paperwork and letters. Let us help you ensure you are doing things right which is compliant with Employment Law.
