TUPE is an abbreviation of ‘Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006’ and protects an employee’s terms and conditions of their employment when this is transferred from one employer to another. When a school becomes an Academy, the employment of staff transfers from the local authority to the Academy Trust.
All employees will transfer to the Academy Trust on their existing terms and conditions of employment. Legal advice should be sought should you want to make changes to the terms and conditions of employment for your staff after the conversion process.
