The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/246)1 (referred to below as TUPE 2006) is now the main piece of legislation governing the transfer of an undertaking, or part of one, to another. The regulations are designed to protect the rights of employees in a transfer situation enabling them to enjoy the same terms and conditions, with continuity of employment, as formerly.
