There are two situations where the TUPE regulations can apply:
1. Business transfers: 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.
2. Service provision transfers: TUPE regulations apply where a client engages a contractor to do work on its behalf, reassigning such a contract or bringing the work in-house.
TUPE regulations impact on the employer who is making the transfer and the employer who is taking on the transfer.
