TUPE for employees

Transfer of employees from one company to another


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

Perhaps you have recently lost a contract and need to transfer employees?

If you are managing TUPE for employees, you may well find yourself caught up in the bewildering world of TUPE regulations.

TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment rights. It is the law that protects employees, and their benefits, when their employment changes hands.

TUPE regulations govern the transfer of employees from one company to another (in part or full).

This can include both business takeovers and service provision changes, like outsourcing, insourcing or assignment to a new contractor, e.g. office cleaning or catering.

This legislation is complex and easy to get wrong. And it’s even more risky if you haven’t fully understood your obligations as an employer. Failure to comply with TUPE management requirements can result in financial penalty.
