Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006

Comment 2nd July 2010

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 ( known colloquially as TUPE, are the United Kingdom's implementation of the European Union Acquired Rights Directive. This act is being used against its purpose. For instance: if I hire a cleaning company and they supply a cleaner, if I am not happy with the service and decide to change cleaning contractors, the new contractor has to offer employment to the orignal cleaner at the same salary and benefits they were on before. This is maddness, as then I would end up with the same cleaner.

Why does this matter?

The act, noble in purpose, is being exploited to make it impossible to use contract companies.
