If you are buying or selling a business, the employees will normally be involved to some degree. For acquisitions, we can help you assess your employment assets and liabilities, then help you address them. Alternatively, if you are looking to buy or sell the assets of a business, TUPE might be an issue, as you will be responsible for the employment of people working in the business. If that is the case there are certain procedures that you legally have to follow, or face stiff fines.
TUPE can also be an issue if you are outsourcing employment. We can help you outsource effectively while meeting the requirements of TUPE. We can also advise on whether TUPE applies to a business sale, and what protection you might need to put in place.
