What does TUPE mean?

TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. This is relevant to any redundancy decisions where a business or part of it is transferred from one owner to another.

Both the old and new owners are required to inform and consult staff affected directly or indirectly by the transfer of ownership. Your employment rights are also protected when the business changes hands. The terms and conditions of your employment are maintained when a business, or part of one, is transferred to a new owner.

It does not mean that the new employer cannot make you redundant but it is worth talking to a specialist lawyer to check if your employer is being fair.
