The Acquired Rights Directive (ARD) dictates what happens to employees when a business activity changes owners. The most common situation in which it applies is a business sale or a business acquisition, but it can also apply to a change of lease, an internal reorganization, and (in some countries) outsourcing operations.
ARD is considered to be one of the most fundamental EU human resources laws, occasionally referred to as “TUPE” in some jurisdictions. If you are a HR professional with responsibility for employees in the EU, it is important that you have an understanding of when this law may apply and what it requires.
