Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE)

Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE), perhaps more than any other area of employment law, operates as a potential minefield for employers. However, it doesn't have to be that way.

At Lupton Fawcett, our employment law team has amassed a wealth of experience in providing TUPE advice for employers. From the TUPE issues that commonly arise in connection with the acquisition or sale of a business, through to the complex and complicated TUPE issues that can sometimes arise in an outsourcing situation or following a corporate insolvency.

With offices based in Leeds, York and Sheffield, the employment law team here at Lupton Fawcett has a wealth of experience in providing help and advice to businesses around Yorkshire. Contact us today by calling 0333 323 5292 or by completing our online contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

What is TUPE?

TUPE protects employees if the owner of a UK-based business changes hands or if a business or organisation decides to outsource part of its function and/or operation to a third party.

TUPE protects all employees regardless of the size of the business. Employees automatically transfer to the new employer on their existing terms and conditions of employment.

How We Can Help

We are able to assist businesses in identifying when a TUPE situation will arise and the steps that they need to take in order to ensure full compliance with the TUPE regulations, including advice in relation to the requirement to inform and consult with employees and recognized Trade Unions or employee representatives.

We are also able to use our experience and understanding of this area of the law to advise clients in relation to the steps that can be taken to minimise the potential for TUPE to apply.

Our lawyers are also frequently called upon to assist clients who are negotiating outsourcing contracts in order to ensure that their exposure to TUPE-related claims at the end of a contract is minimised and that adequate and effective business-to-business indemnities are obtained.
