What is Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment (TUPE)?


The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) protects employees’ terms and conditions when a business is transferred from one owner to another. This can happen to insolvent companies if the insolvency practitioner sells the whole of the business or certain assets of the business to a purchaser. Employees of the insolvent company become employees of the new owner on the same terms and conditions.
