Employees are a vital aspect of any successful enterprise. Buying or selling a business, acquiring new assets, or moving services to or from a contractor will often affect your staff. We pinpoint potential issues with business transfers, deliver practical solutions, and even offer training for senior management to handle the changes successfully.

Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)

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.

Funding Options

There are a number of options available including traditional hourly rates, a guaranteed fixed fee or they can be incorporated into our annual retainer service.

To discuss your options including a fixed fee and retainer service, call us on 08000 93 00 94 or fill out our online enquiry form.
