TUPE refers to the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. The main effect of TUPE is to preserve continuity of employment, as well as terms and conditions of employment, of any employees who are transferred to a new employer when there is a “relevant transfer”.
It is imperative to give due consideration to TUPE in relevant commercial transactions. The specialist solicitors in Warners employment law team can advise you on all areas of TUPE and what due diligence should be undertaken. Often employment claims faced by businesses arise from failure to comply with the strict requirements of the TUPE legislation.
Our TUPE solicitors can advise you on:
- whether TUPE applies to your circumstance
- due diligence if appropriate
- transferor’s and transferee’s statutory consultation obligations
- dismissals and/or changes to terms and conditions before or after a TUPE transfer
