TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. This is relevant to any redundancy decisions where a business or part of it is transferred from one owner to another. Typically TUPE applies when one supplier is taking over a service delivery contract previously held by another company. In this circumstance, employees of the previous contractor have the right to retain their employment under the conditions of their existing employment contracts.
If TUPE applies to the contract for which you are tendering, it is important to reassure the Buyer that you are aware of your obligations under the regulation, and that you have a well-defined methodology and plan for managing the transition.
Below is a template TUPE methodology and plan which you can modify to suit your own business context.
