Isle of Wight TUPE Solicitors

TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006) is a piece of legislation designed to protect the employment rights of employees on the sale of all or part of a business or the outsourcing of a particular service to another business.

Glanvilles Damant solicitors are expert on TUPE regulations and can advise and assist both employers and employees on the issues regarding business transactions, disposals or outsourcing agreements.

Employer and employee advice

For employees, TUPE exists to protect their continuity of employment with unchanged conditions of employment. Employment is automatically transferred with the change of business and any dismissal is deemed automatically unfair (unless in narrowly defined circumstances). Employees must also be consulted regarding any proposals that affect them. Failure to do so could result in the employees receiving up to 13 weeks’ pay in compensation. If an employee’s conditions of employment change substantially due to the transfer, the employee may have the right to resign and claim constructive dismissal. If your job has changed with your new employee or you have been dismissed, you may have a claim that Glanvilles Damant can assist you with.

To avoid costly legal and Tribunal proceedings, Glanvilles Damant can provide employers with precise and clear legal advice before, during and after the business changes hands. By seeking our legal advice early, costly mistakes with regard to TUPE arrangements can be avoided.
