TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. Service provision changes typically occur when a contract on which employees at one organisation work is transferred to another organisation, perhaps as the result of a tender process. These employees may transfer with the contract under TUPE – sometimes to the surprise of the new contractor.
The consequences of breaching TUPE can be significant.
