Employment support for business sales, restructures and redundancies

Whenever a business encounters organisational change, it will need to consider the rights of its employees and the company’s responsibility towards them. BHW is a specialist commercial law firm and its employment law solicitors can advise business owners and directors on the employment implications of a sale or acquisition of a business, including redundancy situations.

Our employment law team will work with you to understand your objectives and help you to plan ahead to minimise risk and promote a compliant consultation process.

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations (TUPE) was introduced to protect employees when the ownership of the business in which they work is transferred. Our employment law solicitors have knowledge of the TUPE regulations and are able to advise both selling and purchasing parties of their obligations.

There are clear procedures that must be adhered to when executing redundancies, including following the correct redundancy consultation process. If the procedures are not followed an ex-employee may bring a case for unfair dismissal at an Employment Tribunal.

It is vital that legal advice is sought before any redundancy process is begun. BHW’s employment solicitors will guide you through the redundancy process and the steps that your business needs to take. Our team will also advise you on the use and terms of any potential settlement agreement that might be used to terminate your employee’s contract of employment.
