What is TUPE and how will my pension be affected?
TUPE refers to the ‘Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006’. The TUPE rules apply to organisations of all sizes and project employee rights when the organisation or service they work for transfers to another employer. Employment rights covered by TUPE include pay and holidays etc. but not pensions.
However, there are Government measures which sit alongside TUPE to ensure that your Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) pension is protected when your job is transferred to another employer.
We have produced a factsheet which outlines the TUPE process in more detail and what it means for your pension.
