You may be experiencing a transitional period at work in which a new company is taking over your place of work or the contract that you are working on.
This can come in different forms; it could be that your employer is merging or being acquired by another company; the contract you are working on has been taken over; or your employer may have entered into insolvency proceedings.
In these situations, employees are often given information and documentation full of complex legal jargon. This is often done to cause confusion amongst employees and deprive them of their employment rights. In other cases, sufficient information is not given to employees about the consequences of the transfer and the effect it will have on each employee.
The TUPE regulations protect employees from losing their employment in these types of situations and in retaining their employment rights.
We have a team of solicitors who regularly deal with TUPE transfers and have done so for a number of years. We have dealt with transfers involving small companies with only a few employees, to large scale transfers involving hundreds of employees. In fact, a number of major Trade Unions specifically use OH Parsons for advice in these areas for our specialist knowledge.
If you are going through a situation affected by TUPE & are unsure about your rights, or have been dismissed during such a procedure, then contact our solicitors on 24 hour Advice Line 0800 526 368 or click here to email us.
