Many people who buy assets of a business do not realise that they may be forced to take employees with them.

Make you sure you do not get taken by surprise.

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations, better known as TUPE, apply when a business is sold, or service provision is outsourced.

They confer legal obligations on the seller and buyer of a business relating to the transfer of employees.

TUPE is a complicated area of law, and parties to a business transfer should take advice on their obligations, and whether TUPE will effect their transaction.
