Ensure that employees' rights are preserved following a TUPE transfer

Key points

  • On a TUPE transfer, the contracts of employment of transferring staff transfer to the new employer, which also inherits the transferor's duties and liabilities under those contracts.
  • Certain rights do not transfer, for example certain rights in connection with pension schemes.
  • After the transfer, the new employer is restricted in its ability to makes changes to the transferring employees' contracts of employment.
