The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations, often called ‘TUPE’, protect employees' terms and conditions of employment when a business is transferred from one owner to another. You’ll find here information on the law on transfers of undertakings and acquired rights.
There are other pages for: mergers and acquisitions, communication and consultation.
Changes to the TUPE Regulations are due to come into force in January 2014. Our employment law FAQs for CIPD members has an overview of these changes or join in discussions on TUPE in the CIPD online communities.
