Transfer of a Business (TUPE)

The TUPE Regulations (Transfer of Undertakings) apply to situations where there is a change of employer due to a relevant transfer.

How can we help?

 

What are my rights under TUPE?

TUPE often occurs in the transfer of the whole or part of a business in instances where the business retains its identity after the transfer. The rights of employees are protected in these situations where their employer has been taken over as a “going concern”. The new employer effectively takes over all the rights and liabilities which existed between the employee and the previous employer.

In a situation where the TUPE Regulations apply, the employee’s contract is transferred to the new employer and their terms and conditions should remain the same. In addition, an employee’s length of service includes the period that they were employed prior to the transfer. Where terms and conditions of an employee’s contract are changed on or after the transfer, the employee may have a claim for breach of contract.

Employees should also be aware that if they have been dismissed by either their old or new employee because of the transfer then they may have a claim for unfair dismissal.

If your terms and conditions of employment have been altered, or you have been dismissed due to a transfer, please contact our Employment Law team for advice.

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

Child Abduction

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
