TUPE refers to the “Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006” and is a piece of legislation that applies to organisations of all sizes.
These rules protect the rights of all employees when the organisation they work for is taken over by new management.
The employer who initiates the transfer is known as the ‘outgoing employer’ or ‘the transferor’, and under TUPE rules, they have an obligation to provide the new employer (also known as the transferee) with thorough employee liability information, and an obligation to inform staff of the TUPE transfer at the earliest possible date.
Employers who fail to consult properly and consequently breach TUPE rules could be made to pay thousands of pounds in compensation.
There is also a greater onus on time management when it comes to TUPE transfers, and PeoplePointHR can ensure you meet all the crucial deadlines.
