TUPE and Staff Transfers

Would you like to effect the smooth transfer of staff on a business sale/purchase whilst protecting the organisation from unforeseen liabilities when doing so?

When you’re buying and selling businesses or tendering for new contracts, we will work closely with you to analyse any employment issues which may arise on these transactions. This includes helping sellers prepare their business for sale and carrying out due diligence for buyers. We will also advise buyers, sellers, clients and contractors on the warranties and indemnities which should be included in the contractual documentation.

We can also guide you through the relevant procedures you must follow, particularly in relation to the recently amended TUPE Regulations.

Our employment team is ready and able to provide you with the comprehensive advice you require to limit any potential liabilities which might otherwise arise and to enable you to effectively integrate any new staff after the transfer. By getting it right and having a plan in place from the start to deal with employees’ concerns, you not only protect your organisation from claims, but also ensure new staff are properly welcomed into your organisation and there is continuity of business performance.

Please contact a member of the employment team to discuss any issues relating to the TUPE Regulations and staff transfers.
