Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE)
- I’m considering acquiring another business similar to my own in order to extend my reach into different areas of the market. I believe that TUPE legislation might apply and am concerned that it can be a bit of a minefield. There are so many factors to consider. I’m not sure where to start.
- There are a number of roles, which will become redundant as a result of acquiring the new business. How do I select which employees should stay and which should go? What payments will redundant employees be entitled to?
