TUPE is designed to protect employees' rights when a business is transferred to new owners. But it's often complex, so if you think you are going to be part of a TUPE transfer, it's a good idea to get specialist legal advice.
TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. TUPE is designed to implement European law, to protect employee’s rights on a business transfer. Subject to certain limited exceptions, if your employment continues with a new employer, your terms and conditions should stay the same – unless you agree to a change or your contract allows you this.
The aim of TUPE is to make sure that your rights are protected.
Our employment team are highly experienced in dealing with company restructures and outsourcing arrangements. Because we routinely act for both employers and employees, we see things from all angles in TUPE cases. That means that we can often anticipate arguments which may be put to us and have responses ready. If you’re facing the transfer of your job to another company or organisation, you’ll want to get independent legal advice to make sure that you’re being treated fairly.
If your job is being transferred to another business, come and talk to us about how we can help. Give us a call for a confidential chat.
Call us for an initial chat, at no obligation, or fill out our enquiry form and a solicitor will get in touch.
We’re open and here to help you. We’re running as normal with our employees all working from home.

As a flexible and technologically-adept firm, we already had many home-working systems in place. We have now rolled this technology out to all our employees working for clients, so they can continue to work normally - and from home.
If you are a client, please be assured you can get in touch with Tees and we are still working on your case. To replace face-to-face meetings, we have the facilities to do video-conferencing, conference calls or just speak on the phone, as you need.
Due to the circumstances, please call us if you would have wanted a home visit, and we can organise the best and safest way of being in touch.
