Business Transfers & TUPE

Advising businesses on TUPE considerations during an acquisition, sale, outsourcing or reorganisation. 

The transfer of undertakings protection of employment regulations – or TUPE, are the complex rules put in place to protect employees when a business or part of a business is transferred or sold to a new employer. 

TUPE is an essential but often contentious consideration that needs careful preparation and implementation to get right. We have a wealth of experience helping clients to successful TUPE employees - supporting with the drafting of legal documents & employment contracts, but also on the employee relations and engagement process that if done right can help to ensure a smooth transfer with minimal risk of dispute or reputational damage. 

There are different considerations for the original employer and the new employer, and we have experience of advising on both sides, including the transfer of any claims or outstanding employment issues, the negotiation of warranties and indemnities and post-acquisition harmonisation issues. In all circumstances, we’ll make sure you comply with the rules, manage any risks and deliver your commercial goals.
