Transfer of Undertakings and Redundancy

Clear advice when faced with TUPE

If your employer sells or transfers the business to another company there are many issues to consider. What happens to you if the new business wants to change the basis upon which you are employed?

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) safeguards your rights when a business is transferred or sold. However it is not always obvious when TUPE applies. For example the outsourcing of work previously done in-house can be caught by TUPE.

At Hart Brown our dedicated team of specialist employment lawyers are highly experienced at advising clients in a wide range of businesses and industries who have been affected by TUPE including improper attempts to change the terms of employment and automatically unfair dismissals. This is a highly technical area where it is crucial that you receive expert advice.

To speak to one of our employment law specialists who can advise you on issues relating to transfer of undertakings or any other employment law issue call, email or request a call back from one of our expert employment lawyers.
