Case Study: TUPE Transfer

A well-known owner of business parks throughout the UK contacted Dearden to ask for HR advice on managing the consequence of an external organisation taking over the ownership of the business parks and the staff who work in them.

Our Work

  • Our work involved managing the communication and formal consultation process for all 100 staff employed by the organisation at six business parks across England and Scotland. 
  • The Dearden team met with individuals affected by the changes and responded to concerns they had about their future employment. 
  • We managed the TUPE transfer of all staff to the new employer and all the contractual issues that emanated from this.
  • Dearden also managed the discussions between the existing and new employer of the business parks and the requirements under TUPE to share and transfer information.


Ownership of the business parks transferred on the date agreed and all staff transferred with no grievances or legal disputes.
