TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations). TUPE protects an employee’s existing contract when the business they work for changes ownership. If you are buying or selling a business, TUPE must be a major consideration.
Both parties can suffer disastrous consequences if they fail to follow the correct procedure. An employee could bring claims of unfair dismissal or redundancy claims if this process is not carried out correctly.
We understand that selling or buying a business can be time-consuming and stressful. You will have many things to consider, but it is vital that TUPE is not overlooked.
Our experts will be on hand from the outset to ensure that you follow the correct procedure. Throughout the transfer, our experts will work closely with your business to ensure that all parties are constantly updated to minimise the risk of any claims. This area of law is complicated, so our employment lawyers will ensure that their explanations are clear and helpful, so you fully understand the business’s position.
