Let's talk

TUPE (The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006) is the legal framework that governs the transfer of business to a new employer, and protects the rights of employees during this process. 

The main aim of TUPE is to ensure that a business transfer does not unfairly disadvantage transferred workers, by preserving continuity of employment. This means that workers employed by the previous employer (the “transferor”) automatically become employees of the new employer (the “transferee”) on the same terms and conditions when the transfer takes effect (except for certain occupational pension rights).

TUPE applies to both public and private sector undertakings, regardless of size or number of employees. The Regulations also apply to businesses that do not operate for financial gain, such as charities.

In addition the TUPE Regulations apply to “changes of service provider” which will cover the vast majority of outsourcing, insourcing, and contract change scenarios.
