If your employer is selling the business, loses a tender to a new contractor or is thinking of outsourcing and this affects you, you have rights which protect you.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (or TUPE for short) are likely to apply to you. This means that your employment should transfer, with your continuous service unaffected. It also means that detrimental changes to your terms and conditions of employment should not be made by your new employer. There are only limited grounds on which you could be dismissed either prior to or after a TUPE transfer. TUPE law is complex, but is designed to protect you.
