Buying and selling a business

Buying or selling a business, acquiring new assets, or moving services to or from a contractor will often affect your staff.

When a business is a transferred from one owner to another, the employees’ terms and conditions are usually protected under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE). This means that continuity of service and any other rights are all preserved. Whether you are the old or the new employer you are required to inform and consult employees affected directly or indirectly by the transfer.
