If your workplace employer has changed or is about to change, there are strict rules and regulations about what outgoing and incoming employers need to do in terms of consulting with you and providing staff with appropriate information.
TUPE rules protect employees' rights when the organisation or service they work for transfers to a new employer. TUPE refers to the "Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations which require employers to carry out a number of well-defined legal actions.
When TUPE applies, the employees of the outgoing employer automatically become employees of the incoming employer at the point of transfer. They carry with them their continuous service from the outgoing employer, and should continue to enjoy the same terms and conditions of employment with the incoming employer.
