Tribunal rules that workers are protected by TUPE

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) provide extensive protection for employees who work for a business that is sold or who perform activities for a service that is outsourced.

Compensation ordered for failure to provide employee liability information where there was a reasonable belief employees would bring claims

The First Tier Tribunal has held that an outgoing employer breached its obligations under the TUPE regulations by failing to notify the incoming employer of potential claims for unlawful deductions of wages. The fact that the failure to pay happened after the deadline for notification was not a barrier, as the outgoing employer had reasonable grounds for believing wages would go unpaid before it passed information to the incoming employer.
