Buying/Selling a business
This is a stressful and emotional time for any business owner, and we’re afraid there are some tough legal boxes that must be ticked in the process. Specifically in employment law, if you are transferring staff from one business to another TUPE (Transfer of Undertaking, Protection of Earnings) legislation is likely to apply. This is a complex piece of legislation, we’ll make a daunting process, feel simple and safe. Over the years we have supported hundreds of business achieve successful business acquisitions.
Often people see the contract of employment as set in stone, but there are times when for a variety of reasons it needs to change. This could be altering bonus or commission schemes, changing hours of work to include on call or just amending some contractual wording. Whatever the change chances are you’ll need to follow a consultation process which we’ll walk you through.
It’s not often straightforward and the best way to really help is to talk through your options.
