TUPE regulations

TUPE regulations

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) are intended to protect employees against changes to their contracts or being dismissed when their employer changes, for example by means of sale of business, privatisation, or contracting out.

In 2014, TUPE regulations were changed.  Members can watch a video of a presentation given by one of our legal officers in April 2014 about the changes.  

If you transferred before 2014, the old rules will apply.  Speak to your Prospect representative or call Prospect's Member Contact Centre for more information.   

The TUPE regulations and their application can be very complicated.  Our members' guide 'TUPE regulations' sets out the legal framework but for more detailed advice contact your Prospect representative, Full Time Official or the Member Contact Centre on 0300 600 1878.     

Members: please log in now (at the top right of the browser window) to view the video presentation.
