Employment laws applying to business transfers and outsourcing arrangements are notoriously complex.
It is important to obtain specialist advice at the earliest opportunity to ensure compliance with the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 ("TUPE") and the recent changes to TUPE and to understand how TUPE may apply.
We regularly advise on the employment, immigration and pensions aspects of large scale corporate transactions, restructuring and outsourcing arrangements and the practical implications of TUPE in those transactions. This includes advising on structuring issues, contract negotiation and the employee/trade union information and consultation process. We also advise on how best to protect your business through appropriate warranties and indemnities in the relevant agreements.
We are becoming increasingly recognised for our knowledge and expertise in this area and strive to make the process as clear and straightforward as possible for our clients.
