Employee TUPE Transfers Consulting

Connor has deep expertise in all aspects of employee transfer, TUPE law and TUPE redundancy.


What is TUPE?

At times of change there may be cases when employee protection under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations (TUPE regulations) comes into effect. This might happen when a business changes owner or when a function such as IT is outsourced but the same people carry on doing the work.

Why Connor?

  • Maximum value for money. Enjoy specialist HR project management expertise at an affordable cost, paying only for what you need when you need it.
  • Benefit from a senior TUPE consultant accompanying your key stakeholders at negotiations, supporting your managing directors, financial directors and board members to mitigate people risks.
  • Deploy five-star communications to engage new employees and reduce risk from disruptive or uncooperative trade unions or the current owner / incumbent when transferring employees from one company to another.
  • Our superb induction workshops facilitate maximum performance as quickly as possible, engender trust in a new employer and help avoid the pitfalls that lead people to leave a job in the first few months.
  • Access to a breath of expertise. Alongside TUPE projects, Connor's team of experts are able to handle more strategic organisational design and change management initiatives. Working with us can give you a one-stop-shop for your entire change programme.
