Business Transfers, Restructures and TUPE

TUPE is short for ‘The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations’ When a business or business department is transferred to a new employer, employees have certain protective rights. Employees are protected against unfair dismissal during and immediately after the business transfer, and have the right to the same employment terms and conditions after the transfer is completed.

Business transfers can be an extremely stressful time for employees. Staff are all too often left in the dark until the transfer is completed, causing uncertainty and worry in the workplace. Unfortunately, it is all too common for some employers to dismiss staff in the period leading up to the sale of their business. The new employers may also try to change the contract terms and conditions of their employees, or dismiss staffs who were transferred over.

Any failure by the business parties involved to provide sufficient information or in certain circumstances to properly consult with affected employees can entitle the employee to compensation.

If you have not been properly consulted or given appropriate information about a proposed transfer, have had your terms and conditions of employment changed by your new employer, or have been dismissed in connection with the business transfer, then contact Macks today. Their expert solicitors can assess your rights and determine whether you are entitled to claim compensation. They offer a comprehensive service to all our clients, and will fight for you every step of the way, taking up tribunal proceedings on your behalf where necessary.
