TUPE Update

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (“TUPE”) – the notoriously complex rules which require employers who take over a business, or take over certain contracts from another employer, to take on the employees who worked in the business or the contract acquired – have recently been amended (again).

The changes, enacted by the snappily-titled Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Employment (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 came into force on 31 January 2014.
