OK, I admit it. TUPE isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It is often perceived as unfriendly for business, an unnecessary distraction when trying to negotiate a business sale or outsourcing contract. For those unfamiliar with it, TUPE can prompt a range of reactions: curiosity, bewilderment, indifference. There are certainly areas of complexity, but I think the key for any business is to focus not on the law, but on its preferred commercial outcome.
