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
