Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Guidance

This guidance provides advice on the application of TUPE Regulations to support employers to comply with legal requirements.

TUPE Regulations are designed to protect the rights of employees and apply to

  • Business Transfers, where the whole or part of a business is sold; and
  • Service Provision Changes, where a business contracts out or contracts in some of its activities or changes the contractor, it uses to provide those services.

This guidance is designed to provide guidance to the practical application of TUPE providing template letters and forms.

Please contact the Employee Relations Helpline if you have any questions not answered in the guidance.
