This advice summarises the employment rights provided by the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, usually referred to as ‘TUPE’.
In England, competitive tendering for the provision of primary care dental services means that TUPE transfers within the salaried service are fairly common. TUPE transfers may also occur anywhere in the UK as a consequence of service reorganisation.
The information is potentially relevant to any member employed under a contract of employment. However, TUPE is a complex area of law; this information is not intended to provide definitive legal guidance.
Employed members affected by the transfer of their employment to a different Trust, social enterprise or independent provider should seek advice from our Employment Relations Team without delay.
