We have a proven track record of carrying out due diligence for business acquisitions, whether TUPE applies or not, identifying relevant factors which need to be taken account of in acquiring a new workforce.
We also advise businesses and insolvency practitioners on the impact of TUPE (“Transfer of Undertaking (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006”).
We’ll identify when the regulations apply and help avoid the many possible traps in the legislation.
