If you are buying or selling a business, you must consider how any transaction will impact upon the members of staff.
For acquisitions, we can help you assess the employment liabilities and true value of what you will be taking on as part of your due diligence.
With certain transactions, to include asset purchases or outsourcing of staff, in most situations, the provisions of TUPE will apply. Where these provisions do apply, we will be on hand to advise you on the obligations which you might owe to members of staff affected by the Transfer, to include how you may have to safeguard their contractual terms and/or how you may have to consult with them about the Transfer or any changes that may follow as a result.
If you feel you may be in danger of being caught by the TUPE regulations and you are unsure about what obligations and procedures you should be following in respect of the staff, please do not hesitate to contact us for a free 30 minute consultation.
