Our team of TUPE solicitors can support community organisations on all aspects of complying with TUPE, from whether TUPE applies to advising on pension issues.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations, were introduced in 2006 to protect the rights of employees when the organisation they are employed by is acquired by a new organisation or when there is a change is service provider. Commonly known as TUPE, their purpose is to automatically transfer employees and any associated liabilities, such as pension contributions from one employer to another following an acquisition. In the community sector, TUPE can arise in association with a community-asset transfer or with the transfer of a service to a local organisation.
TUPE can be a complex piece of legislation. Our experienced TUPE solicitors can support community organisations with every aspect of TUPE and can help you safeguard against associated risks. Should an organisation fail to comply with TUPE it could be faced with costly and time-consuming Court proceedings.
