Transfer of Undertakings - Protection of Employment (TUPE) 

If you work for a business that has been acquired or are part of a team that carries out contract services that have transferred to another contract provider then you may be affected by and have rights under the Transfer of Undertakings - Protection of Employment (TUPE) Regulations 2006.

Employment Protection established by TUPE
