Specialist expertise to help you navigate the complex TUPE process.


The TUPE Regulations apply where a business is buying another business or part of another business or were a service provided by a business is either being contracted out, or if already contracted out, being brought back in-house or is being contracted out to a new company.

TUPE regulations protect employees’ rights when they transfer to a new employer. TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment).

When TUPE applies, the continuity of service and terms and conditions of employment of transferring employees are maintained. This will include:

  • Salaries
  • holiday entitlement and sick pay entitlement
  • any promises made to the employee
  • any other terms of the employment contract.

The TUPE process can be complex and there may be financial penalties for not correctly observing the requirements. When done properly, the TUPE process can be both advantageous and simple for all parties. Our team has the expertise to ensure this is the case.
