Our experienced team of TUPE solicitors can support organisations on all aspects of complying with TUPE, from whether TUPE applies, to advising on pension issues, pension rights and the associated financial risks.
Commonly known as TUPE, The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations were introduced in 2006 to protect the rights of employees when the organisation they work for is sold to another organisation or when there is a change in service provider. Failure to comply with TUPE can result in costly and time-consuming Court proceedings.
TUPE automatically transfers employees and any liabilities associated with them from the current employer to the new employer by operation of law. Our experienced team of solicitors understand that TUPE is a significant and often complex piece of legislation and can work in partnership with your organisation to provide professional legal advice.
