If you’re considering a restructure of your business it’s likely that there are some difficult decisions to be made which will not only impact on those employees faced with potential redundancy but also those managers making the tough decisions and those employees left behind.
It’s essential that the process is managing in the right way to reduce both stress and worry and to protect your business from any unfair dismissal claims. Our expert team have extensive practical experience in this area and can provide assistance and support guiding you through the process on a step by step basis whilst significantly reducing your exposure to any risk.
If part of your business is being sold as part of your restructure, the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (commonly known as TUPE) may apply. TUPE applies for the automatic transfer of employees on the same terms and conditions.
The regulations are notoriously complex but our expert team will work hard to assist our clients and provide guidance which is jargon free and technically sound, ensuring that legal rights are fully understood.
