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 provided to me by Redmans Solicitors was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris. While I cannot get into the detail of the matter, it was very emotionally difficult for me and Chris was sensitive throughout and was clear that his motivation was arriving at a solution that helped me while I am unwell - and less about his own fee. His emotional intelligence was coupled with a very sharp and quick understanding of the complex facts of the matter and the legal arguments and he quickly formed a strong case working with me the whole way. Chris was particularly patient with me at what I found a stressful time, and I want to thank him personally for everything he did.

    Chris Hadrill provided me with very efficient turn around of an employment offer from a US-based company. Chris reviewed the contract, identified key issues and offered sound/pragmatic advice and suggestions for improvement which I could then bring in non-legalese to my prospective employer. Employer accepted all the important changes Chris suggested and I accepted the job!! Very satisfied with the service.

    I was very happy with the work Chris did for me. I believe with his help I secured a more favourable outcome both financially and in terms of clauses contained in the legal agreement I ultimately signed. I had utmost trust and confidence in the advice Chris provided throughout. Chris kept me informed at every stage and I found him very efficient at bringing matters to a conclusion without unnecessary delay.
