Where the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (‘TUPE’) applies, employment is automatically transferred to the buyer with full continuity of service and any dismissal because of the transfer is automatically unfair. It is therefore vital that you understand the extent of the risks and liabilities attaching to the workforce which will transfer to your business under the operation of TUPE.
In a supporting role to our Corporate team in the legal due diligence process, we will review all employment aspects of the new business and any potential impact on the future of the business to determine how these can be addressed or resolved.
Our specialist team has extensive experience in advising on all employment related aspects during a business or share sale or purchase.
