Many thanks for your patience. Whether TUPE applies here would depend on the circumstances of the outsourcing. It could be that TUPE applies because of a sale of the business, or because a new contractor takes over the services provided by their current employer. Examples include:
So assuming that the same activities will continue to be carried out by the new employer then it is likely that TUPE will automatically apply and you will transfer to the new employer. Unfortunately you cannot then claim for redundancy and also continue working for the new employer – it is an automatic transfer where your employment transfers automatically and you are not made redundant but the new employer simply takes over the contract. So nothing should change apart from the employer’s name and your other terms should remain the same.
Hope this clarifies your position?
