Where a business (or part of a business) is sold, or where a service provision change takes place, the resulting transfer may amount to a “TUPE” transfer and be covered by the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.
Beecham Peacock are here to help with all of your Employment Law problems.
TUPE is a complex area of employment law and getting it wrong can be costly for both the outgoing and incoming employer. It is therefore very important to seek advice as to whether a transfer is likely to amount to a TUPE transfer, and if so, the implications of this on your business.
For example, under TUPE, the existing employees of a business will transfer to a new employer, remaining protected under the terms and conditions of their previous employment contract and any dismissal connected to the transfer will be unfair.
If you are considering buying or selling your business (or part of it) our team of TUPE solicitors can provide clear, practical commercial legal advice to help you understand your obligations and minimise the risk of litigation.
