Hassle Free HR – Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) 

A transfer of undertaking can, broadly speaking, either be a business transfer or a service provision change. In either of these situations, employees are protected by The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE 2006) and therefore it is very important to ensure your actions and the process you follow are legally compliant. Because of the complicated nature of TUPE transfers, Hassle Free HR always recommend employers seek advice and guidance before proceeding with the management of the Transfer.

Hassle Free HR can help you to understand situations where TUPE applies to e.g. to mergers, a change of licensee or franchise, or a change contractors, to name a few.

Hassle Free HR can also advise you on and assist you with the management of your TUPE transfer. With our support you can rest assured that all employees will be notified of the transfer in a timely manner, and then consulted with appropriately. Hassle Free HR will also help you to work with all relevant employee representatives who may be involved in the transfer process, helping it to be as smooth and “hassle free” as possible.
