What is TUPE?

TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. TUPE is designed to implement European law, to protect employee’s rights on a business transfer.
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.

When will TUPE apply?

TUPE applies where there is a "business transfer". This may either be as the result of a sale of a business or as a result of a change in service provider.
There are two types of relevant transfer:

Some transfers will be both a business transfer and a service provision change.
