for no obligation advice on business transfers.
When a service or the whole or part of a business is a transferred from one employer to another, the affected employees' terms and conditions (as well as continuity of service) are usually protected under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE). It is one of the most complicated pieces of employment legislation and costly for businesses if ignored or misunderstood.
Whether you are the old or the new employer, you are required to inform and consult with affected employees and their representatives. We will ensure you comply with the law. If you have failed to do so, a Tribunal can award up to 13 weeks' pay for each affected employee.
We will guide you through this process and help you carry out the necessary due diligence investigations to ensure there are no expensive surprises and you meet all your obligations.
