Changing The Way Your Business Operates? 

Peter Jones of HR Dept. Swindon explains how TUPE could affect you
 
Peter Jones:
HR Dept. Swindon
Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE as more commonly known) is not the most straightforward piece of employment legislation.
 
Why?
 
It is complicated and often catches employers/business owners out who are unaware of its terms and procedures. If you or anyone you know is considering or about to do any of the following (not an exhaustive list) then TUPE could apply:

- Buy or sell a business
- Outsource a service or activity
- Insource a service or activity
- Buy or sell part of a business or asset
- Change company status (for example to ‘limited company’)

TUPE is the protection of the rights of employees connected to the business, activity or asset.
 
Failure to follow the rules around TUPE, even for what might seem the simplest or most straight forward reason can lead to protective awards of up to 90 days pay and other tribunal awards depending on
the circumstances. If we can provide some early advice to someone you know who may be about to embark on one of the above, please do let us know.
