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).
On a TUPE transfer, the contracts of employment of transferring staff transfer to the new employer, which also inherits the transferor’s duties and liabilities under those contracts.
After the transfer, the new employer is restricted in its ability to makes changes to the transferring employees’ contracts of employment.
