TUPE overview: What is it? When does it apply?

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (‘TUPE’) protect employees when the work they do is transferred from one business to another.

Your business might gain (or lose) employees and employment-related liabilities if it is involved in a business transfer or outsourcing exercise to which TUPE applies.

This section is only a summary of what TUPE is and what happens if TUPE applies. We recommend obtaining specialist advice if you are involved in the transfer of a business or outsourcing.
