The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 is complex legislation which can apply in many situations, for example, where you lose a contract, win a contract or even outsource a contract. It can also apply when you are buying or selling a business.
Identifying whether TUPE applies can be tricky. Our team of experienced Employment Law Solicitors have a wealth of experience advising on TUPE matters and can identify if this is applicable for your business.
If TUPE does apply to the particular transaction then we can guide you through your obligations including helping with gathering ‘due diligence’ and drafting the TUPE clauses to protect your position after the transfer happens and in the event that you lose the contract in the future.
Where necessary, you may need to undertake consultations with employee representatives and we are at hand to help you through the process including dealing with Trade Unions if they are involved.
