Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE)



A transfer of undertakings (TUPE) applies in connection with either a business transfer such as where a business is sold or a service provision change for example where a service is outsourced or re-tendered to another contractor.
As an employer, there are many risks around a TUPE transfer including the position that a dismissal connected to a TUPE transfer is normally automatically unfair. There are detailed considerations when either transferring out employees or receiving new employees under a TUPE provision. Many employers are oblivious to the requirements of TUPE.  Sometimes, this can result in serious financial consequences by way of compensation being awarded at an employment tribunal.
