The decision to sell or buy a business is often not straightforward and the employment regulations connected with it are complex. Ensuring the relevant legislation is not forgotten is where Wannops can help.
There are certain legal requirements that have to be observed when a business is transferred. Failure to do so is a problem. Employees are protected and you need to know what this means. A business transfer may be in the usual sale or purchase situation, but can often apply in other situations, such as tender contracts, when you may need to deal with transferring staff.
Employee rights are paramount in avoiding litigation. We can meet and advise you what you need to do. We always explain your options and the issues using plain English, and we clearly say what the likely timescales and costs are. If a problem should occur, we are always on hand to help find you a solution. This may be advising you on the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations (TUPE) in isolation or in tandem with our Corporate team on a business sale of purchase.
