Understanding TUPE transfers in 2019

TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.

If your business changes hands or contracted service providers, then you need to know exactly how TUPE works.

If you don’t comply with TUPE regulations could put your business at serious risk. If staff aren’t made aware of your company changes, it could result in an employee making a claim against you, and you could be forced to pay out a substantial amount in a tribunal.
