1. Dear Mr. Leach, just because a company has been taken over by another company does not mean that it avoids liability for existing or pre-existing employee disputes. Essentially, in your situation, each of the companies taking over a company remains liable for the existing employment disputes which exist at the time of takeover. Essentially, the company taking over the other inherits all employee disputes which are in existence and the legal liability continues remains with the company taking over the other. Accordingly, if you have a dispute over unpaid hours in existence since June 2010 with a company which has been taken over twice in the interim, each of the taking over companies will be liable for your claim for unpaid hours. Accordingly, you should continue to prosecute your claim as it existed, but be aware that each of the companies which took over the other inherited this liability to your for unpaid hours.

I did rate your service yesterday and asked a follow up question. I will be prosecuting this matter in the small claims court but I understand that the precise wording of the claim form is very important, I also wish to claim expenses and interest on what is owed, are you able to help write the claim?
