If your employment is being transferred perhaps because your employer is selling the business or because your role is being outsourced, or being taken back in house, you have certain rights under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (as amended). These include to be informed of the transfer; to be consulted if there are to be changes which affect you, and, to enjoy the same terms and conditions after the transfer as before, subject to a few exceptions.
Your employer’s failure to comply with any of these obligations may give rise to a claim. We can advise at all stages of a transfer process: whether you need to know what your rights are at the beginning, encounter some difficulties in the middle or think you may have a claim at any stage. We provide reassurance and guidance during the process and can bring a claim on your behalf, or engage in negotiations with your employer.
