            TUPE law

            TUPE plays a key role in the legal and HR aspects of commercial contracts and matters, including outsourcings and insourcings.

            Our TUPE legal advice

            Being complicated to understand and apply, TUPE law needs expert input to guide clients through the various potential pitfalls, to reduce the risk of costly claims and penalties arising from the restrictions which apply to changes to terms and conditions and dismissals, to the obligations to inform and consult the workforce.

            Our TUPE law specialists advise a range of public and private clients across a wide range of sectors including the IT, retail, transport, catering, security, logistics, and professional services sectors on all types of matters involving TUPE legal advice, from straightforward purchasing contracts to large complex outsourcings. Our team will help you successfully navigate the TUPE minefield, and we will deliver practical solutions to the various TUPE problems by assisting you with:

            • Early stage planning, risk analysis and strategic input on the implications of TUPE
            • Drafting and negotiating contractual provisions to moderate the effect of TUPE and reflect the commercially agreed position and allocation of risk
            • Complying with information and consultation requirements , and training staff representatives
            • Transfer-related redundancies and harmonisation issues.
