TUPE Law for Employees – FAQs

TUPE Law for Employees – FAQs

Listed below are questions we are commonly asked:

What if I don’t want to work for the new company?

If you don’t want your employment to transfer to the new company then you can opt-out of the transfer. You need to think very carefully before doing this, because this has the effect of your resigning and you couldn’t bring a claim.  If your  concern is that the new employer is planning to make substantial changes to your working conditions which you are unhappy about, you may be able to bring a claim or negotiate with a view to reaching a better deal. You should take advice from us before you take any action.

When does TUPE apply?

TUPE can apply in many contexts, but the most common scenario is when a business (or part of a business) is sold, with the buyer acquiring the assets and goodwill and continues to trade as a going concern.

TUPE also applies where there is a change of service provider. If services which were undertaken in-house are outsourced to a third party or if services are taken back in-house, TUPE may well apply.
