TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. They protect employees’ rights when the business they work for transfers to a new employer because of a merger, or where the business is sold or bought.
TUPE can be difficult to understand and even harder to apply. We can provide bespoke advice if you are an employer struggling with TUPE and suspect you may be being taken advantage of, or are concerned about your duties to employees.
