TUPE refers to the “Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006” as amended by the “Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2014”.
TUPE applies to organisations of all sizes and protects employees’ rights when the organisation or service they work for transfers to a new employer.
TUPE has impacts for the employer who is making the transfer (also known as the transferor) and the employer who is taking on the transfer (also known as the transferee).
TUPE can apply to the sale of a business as a going concern or where one contractor takes over a service for a client which had previously been carried out either in-house or by another company.
The most common examples are when a cleaning company loses a contract to another company or when an IT service is outsourced to an external provider.
The effect is that any employees working in the original company or service will transfer to the employment of the new company or service provider. The financial implications of a transfer can not, therefore, be underestimated.
There are also obligations as to consultation by both parties in a transfer and failure to comply with these can result in claims being commenced against the business.
It is sensible if you think TUPE may apply to a transaction in which you are involved to take advice as far in advance of the transaction as you are able. The team are experienced in advising you as to whether the TUPE Regulations apply and guiding you through your obligations (if any).

Did Not Disappoint
Marie was recommended to by a friend – and she did not disappoint. Great client service from the whole team, very practical and pragmatic advice and a happy client at the end of it!
Thank you, all. Highly recommend for employment law advice.
I’d like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Andy Boyde for helping me with my employment issue. For someone who was in a difficult situation his knowledge and expertise helped guide me through the process. He always provided quick responses and was readily available to provide expert advice whenever I needed it. I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown and would recommend him if you are ever in a complicated employment situation.
Patient & Understanding
I spoke with Victoria Horner who gave me not only patience and understanding, but excellent legal advice that left me feeling confident. I would definitely recommend Victoria and Consilia Legal.
Seriously On The Ball
Cannot recommend this company enough. Seriously on the ball, ring you back when they say they will and completely exceed expectations. Thank you Andy and all at Consilia.
Couldn’t have been happier
I couldn’t have been happier with your service – you and your team were a pleasure to deal with. I had absolute confidence in Marie and loved her pragmatic and no nonsense approach. I was also treated with total respect at what was a personally challenging time for me. Couldn’t recommend you highly enough.
Put me at ease
Marie put me at ease at all times and trusted that she would always work for my best interest. She did not let me down.
I am so grateful for all your help and support on this matter. It had been the first time I had been in such a situation and felt nervous and uncertain. Marie put me at ease and helped me to get a deal I was happy with. Thank you.
