From sales or purchase of a company to a change in cleaning contractor or IT services provider, our experienced employment lawyers can advise on the effect of Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) and what it could mean for your business.
The purpose of TUPE is to protect employees if their employer changes hands. The effect of TUPE is to automatically transfer the employees, along with all rights and any liabilities associated with them, from the old employer to the new employer.
TUPE can apply to employers of all sizes from the sole trader employing one part-time member of staff to multinational corporations. It covers an enormous number of different business transactions and, if it isn’t followed correctly, you could be left with significant liabilities and penalties.
We offer clear, practical and jargon free support so that you can get to grips with TUPE and manage the process and expectations of those affected.
