Transfer of undertakings (TUPE) laws safeguard employees’ rights when there is a transfer of a business or service from one organisation (the transferor) to another organisation (the transferee).

After the transfer, the new employer is restricted in its ability to makes changes to the transferring employees’ contracts of employment.
