Business Transfers + TUPE Solicitors
TUPE regulations are designed to safeguard employees’ rights on the transfer of a business. It means that employees’ terms and conditions are preserved when a business is transferred from one employer to another, or is merged and the identity of the employer changes.
Similarly, where a task or activity is no longer carried out by one person or organisation, and moved to another (Service Provision Change), TUPE protects the employment rights of the employees affected by that transfer.
TUPE legislation is complex and might seem overwhelming for an employer, but it is vital you get it right.
Employee transfers might also provoke feelings of uncertainty in the workplace. It’s therefore important to seek legal advice as soon as possible in order to help both you as the employer and employees understand the process. This can also ensure the business transfer is undertaken with as little stress and uncertainty as possible.
Our specialist employment solicitors can advise employers at an early stage of any business transfer to ensure that they comply with what is required under TUPE. We can help avoid any possible liability which could lead to an employment law claim being made against them.
