Experts in the law relating to TUPE

If the business you work for is being transferred to a new employer then you will want and need expert advice on the potential consequences and how you should approach the transfer of the business. Such situations often engage your rights relating to TUPE. Business transfers can be extremely stressful as they can often be complex and employees are too often left in the dark relating to their TUPE rights on the transfer of the business. Our expert employment lawyers have specialist legal knowledge of the legal issues relating to business transfers and the application of the TUPE regulations. We can provide you with the advice you need and will clearly and concisely explain your options and the potential consequences of the business transfer and the application of your TUPE-related rights.

How our lawyers will deal with your TUPE issue

The approach of our specialist employment law solicitors will differ depending on the type of the business transfer. A business transfer can occur in a number of different scenarios – the whole business may be sold, part of the business may be sold, there may be a merger of businesses, or there may be a change of parties that are providing services relating to a contract. The potential consequences of the different type of business transfers may differ but generally TUPE will apply to such situations. This means that you are afforded with enhanced rights relating to any potential dismissal by your current or new employer and that the rights and duties of your contract of employment are transferred to your new employer. However, your new employer often states that they need to “harmonise” the terms and conditions of its new employees with its current employees and this can leave you uncertain as to what the potential consequences of the business transfer may be. Both your old and your new employer should consult with you regarding the transfer of  your employment but employers are often uncertain as to their obligations in such situations.

Our expert employment lawyers therefore offer advice on the law relating to TUPE and the options that you have in applying your TUPE-related rights. We will firstly engage on an informal basis with your employer to try and preempt any potential legal problems – we believe that negotiation is always preferable to litigation. However, if it is not possible to settle your TUPE problem then we will help you through the dispute resolution process. We can help you pursue your litigation through the Employment Tribunal and offer representation at the Employment Tribunal. However, we’ll try and settled your case for you both prior to and during the Employment Tribunal proceedings by engaging with your employer. This may involve the drafting and signing of a compromise agreement.

    The service I received was friendly and professional. I appreciated the timely communications and Mel was always available for any questions I had. I'd definitely recommend Redmans and will use them in a heartbeat should the situation arise again.

    Redmans Solicitors recently helped me navigate a recent employment termination settlement agreement. Chris Hadrill is very professional and you will be in good hands with him. I score Redmans 4 out of 5 because things had to move fast and felt the team member assigned to my case wasn't very responsive at times. Having said that, I was very happy with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending their services.

    I was made a settlement offer by my employer to terminate my emplyment early. Redmans helped me understand the offer, and ensured that it was fair for someone in my position. They made a very stressful situation much easier. Excellent service.

    Overall I am satisfied with the performance from Redmans. The reason I have given 4 stars is that I had quite a lot difficulty in contacting the representative which was initially nominated for me. However, when I contacted Chris instead, he was excellent over the phone and secured a great outcome in short order. I would recommend Redmans Solicitors.

    I don’t normally write reviews, but thought it was time on this occasion. Just wanted to say that I highly recommend Redmans - especially Rana Tandon, who helped me navigate around my employment contract. Rana was meticulous and thorough and all over my needs. Would I use Redmans again ? ..absolutely

    Very thorough and professional service. I was very nervous about my employment case, as I had never dealt with anything like it before. However, the solicitors who handled my case made sure I understood everything. I was never kept in the dark and Redmans kept me constantly informed about what was going on with my case. I would definitely recommend Redmans Solicitors

    Chris and Sacha were great throughout the entire process. Chris was very helpful once the initial discussions with my company began and before we agreed there was a case. Sacha was very responsive, patient and helpful throughout ensuring I felt I had the right information to make the best decision on next steps. A close friend and wife have both used Redmans in the past few years for unfair dismissals and the service continues to be first-class and I would strongly recommend them again. They definitely help reduce the anxiety that comes with uncertainty around new processes and situations. Thank you!
