In order to protect employees’ terms and conditions in the event of a business, or part of a business, being bought or sold, or in the event of services being outsourced or insourced, the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations – often referred to as TUPE-may apply.


TUPE is designed to protect transferring employees’ employment and ensure that their terms and conditions are maintained.


TUPE and its application is notoriously tricky for employers to navigate and failure to comply with an employer’s statutory obligations can have serious repercussions. If you are considering a business sale or buying a business, or if you are looking to outsource or insource part of your business, then contact the Lamb Brooks Employment Department, who can guide you through the complex web of procedures.

"You may have to go a long way to find professionals that demonstrate such a high degree of care. All the team are welcoming, polite, efficient and display a sense of humour."
