Business Employment Law
Employment rights when acquiring, selling or outsourcing
If you are acquiring or disposing of a business, or involved in the outsourcing or insourcing of in-house services such as Payroll or HR, the employment rights of affected employees may be protected under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, commonly referred to as TUPE. Understanding what this means for your business and finding a strategy to deal with it is essential.
At Morrisons Solicitors our employment lawyers will take the time to understand your business and circumstances, and, drawing on the expertise of our Corporate and Commercial solicitors, will help to minimise the risk of claims and the impact of the transfer on affected employees.
We can provide answers to queries such as:
- What happens to employee contracts?
- What are your consultation obligations?
- What employee information are you obliged to provide to the other party in the transaction?
- What happens if you need to make redundancies or other changes in connection with the business transfer or outsourcing arrangements?
Please contact one of the team for more information or to discuss your requirements.
