TUPE Regulations have been designed to protect employees’ rights in business transfer and service provision transfer situations. TUPE stands for “Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006″ as amended by the “Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2014.”
At Davenport Solicitors, our expert lawyers have considerable experience in handling TUPE cases. We understand that TUPE is a very complex area of employment law and that the process can put great strain on the employer involved in the process. Therefore, we offer comprehensive legal advice to employers on their obligations when dealing with transferred employees to help them avoid employment tribunal claims.
The two main transfer situations where the TUPE regulations apply are:
1. Business transfer: TUPE regulations apply if a business or part of a business moves to another business. This could be a merger with another business to make a brand new employer.
2. Service provision transfer: 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.
If you are involved in a TUPE process, we recommend you seek our assistance in the early stages of the process. We will be able to provide our guidance, assistance, and representation to help you save time and costs.
