Employment Law solicitors dealing with Contracts & Policies/Procedures in Dorset
Contracts of employment are so important since they set out the template for your working relationship with your staff. Once offered and accepted by staff they can be difficult to change so getting the right contract in place from the start is vital to protect your company’s interests.
If your organisation would like assistance with drafting either contracts or policies & procedures for your employees please contact our employment team.
Transfer of Employment
Working with our Corporate and Commercial team we can assist you on the employment aspects of the sale or purchase of your business where you may well have to comply with the TUPE regulations. In essence, TUPE preserves the employment rights of the seller’s employees when the business is sold to the buyer. The TUPE rules are complex and the consequences of not complying can be very serious so we would recommend you get in touch with us at an early stage if you are considering buying or selling a business.
Also, if your company is contemplating outsourcing, in-sourcing or re-sourcing services or considering tending for a service contract previously supplied to your prospective customer by a similar business to yours, you should also be aware that TUPE may well apply.
