TUPE Transfers

We have significant experience of advising employees on the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE). In particular, we have advised employees on their employment rights before and/or after the transfer of a business and when a ‘service provision change’ has taken place (for example, where a contractor takes on a contract to provide a service for a client from another contractor).

Our experience of TUPE is both in relation to corporate support work acting for employers, advising employers after a transfer, and advising senior employees throughout a relevant process.

We also advise on collective employment law issues.

Recent experience includes:

  • Advising a senior executive following the acquisition of a business and the use of share transfers to avoid TUPE
  • Representing a client in their claim for a TUPE related unfair dismissal, failure to inform and consult, and failure to honour contractual terms
  • Advising a senior executive of a marketing company on the effect of a TUPE transfer on their post-termination restrictions
